You missed the whole US series.Ash played probably one of her worst matches of the season from the 2nd set on, just too many basic errors especially on her FH. She hasn't played well against Mladenovic yet in all their meetings so far.
She couldn't have played a worse tiebreak if she tried really.
Kiki really was out of this up till 26 44, then made two miraculous BH passes to break Ash and then all the momentum was on her side. Looked like Kiki got the momentum in the 3rd and Ash broke back twice, led 6-5 and then just became an error machine.
This is going to give Kiki a lot of confidence, one of the best matches of her career. Very gracious to the Aussie crowd as well.
Australia is now on the ropes. Garcia, even with her dismal showing yesterday, should be the favourite for the next match.
