When Safarova prepared to serve for the match, there was already some drizzle and the sky was covered with the heaviest, darkest clouds you can imagine. Safarova either won quickly or faced the prospect of a rain delay. So she goes for broke with her serve, takes no more than 10 secs between points, and reaches MP. She starts her service motion and the first rain begins to fall. Ace, GSM. The very next instant (and I do mean the very next instant ), the downpour begins.
