Yoon Jeong CHO (KOR)/Francesca SCHIAVONE (ITA) d. Teryn ASHLEY (USA)/Abigail SPEARS (USA) 7-5, 7-6 (7)
This one was incredible, but I left very disappointed. As I said, Schiavone was fricken off the hook. She's also pretty funny to watch. She's a character. It went back and forth the whole night. For some reason Ashley kept on coming up instead of playing back in the second set and towards the end of the match and Cho kept hitting lobs over their heads. I couldn't believe it. I swear Cho must have hit atleast 15 superb quality lobs the whole night, with about 10 coming in the last 4 games and tie-breaker. Ashley just wouldn't learn her lesson. And she was just trying to rally with Cho, someone that she should have been trying to overpower. I think practicing sometimes does players a little bad since it makes them just want to rally with opponents instead of trying to ram the ball down their throats. She would just rally with Cho, then approach on a shot that she knows Cho could do whatever she wants with and Cho was just lob it over their heads. Abby was awesome at the net and on her shots, though. She has an incredible smile, IMO.
