After numerous MP, saving 2MP for Sakkari, Krejcikova came up with the goods and finally delivered a win. Absolute see-saw of a match, crowd completely against Krejcikova, collapse of Sakkari after being up a break and then once levelled at 6-6 in 3rd set, the level had risen!

Her post-match interview was very admirable, showing appreciation to Sakkari and mentioning her team, Navratilova and a tribute to Novotna.

I hope Babs can bring it in the final and not moonball haha. Very proud of her persistence and her winning stream is admirable. New clay GOAT!

Win both the singles and the doubles Barbs! An expected choke from Maria, but she played nice to save those three MPs at 7-6. The drama with that fourth match point, that forehand from Maria was out on hawkeye, but the umpire called it in, the mess.

Babs has a mature and calm attitude. Mental toughness won today! It's nice to see someone on the WTA tour who does a variety of things. Novotna would be proud of her. There aren't many players on the WTA who do it. It's easier to pick a winning lottery ticket than it is to pick the Grand Slam women's champion.

Worst SF since US Open 2007 Sveta/Anna in terms of both players?

Hope Pavs takes this.

That umpire is a MESS. He's lucky Krej won the match cause otherwise, he'd be out of a job.

Epic Match!
Hats off to both lady.

key point of this win for Krejčíková is her amazing depth return and backhand down the line.

Sakkari does everything she could, don't have to regret at all.
