Re: 💙 Marta Kostyuk 💛 #AussieMarta 🏆👑
I watched the match (Tiafoe and Opelka are playing the last set as I type this) and Marta got embarrassed by Dart 5-1. Negative body language, talking to herself, wild errors. She got a stern talking-to in a GEICO timeout by Coach MacPherson.
Marta was in tears after the set and Coach MacPherson went over to console her. Shelby gave her some encouragement before they went for women's doubles. She played much better, was laughing and smiling (there was a scoreboard faux pas. They use a manual scoreboard), but they blew a 4-1 lead and lost the set to Dart and Muhammad 5-4 (which is a tiebreaker score in WTT).
It should be noted that Washington is playing all home matches on a roof. An actual roof.
