Had at least 2 set points in first set tiebreak and led 5-2 40-15 before hitting 3 unforced errors in a row and then pushing. She might have made final if she'd won
Throughout this year though she has been phasing that out. Still, I overreacted a little because I know how she can play and how she did playAs someone that has watched a bunch of Su Wei matches I can conclude than on breakpoints/setpoints/matchpoints she stops playing her game, just pushes and seems scared
Its because she moves nicely on clay, gets better angles and has more time to set up. A bit why Nana is good on clayExtremely impressed with Su-Wei. She may not have won but to go toe to toe with Medina Garrigues for 2 and half hours on a slow clay court with such a close scoreline is nothing to be ashamed of. AMG now stands at 27-4 at this tournament with 3 titles since 2005. And three of the losses came against Sharapova, Bartoli and Peng all very fine players. AMG loves it here.
I have always rather thought Su-Wei couldn't really play very well on clay. She has definately proved me wrong this week.
