well, the score doesn't say anything!
in the first, i had a break point on his first serve game but lost it. she broke me to lead 3-2 but i came back and won 10 games in a row.
but firstly, the points were very hard to win, she defends really well. and secondly, she made several errors from 0-0 to 3-0 in the second. after that, she had game points, even on my serve.
she saved a match point and try to defend everything. fortunately, i did less faults in the second (4, it wa s12 in the first).
vanessa, will be good soon. :d
It really was a much better match than the score indicates. Our first point was a classic 36-stroke rally that ended in dramatic fasion. I started off well and broke Tati, but unfortunately got broken back right away. The next break though was unfortunate, considering I double faulted twice using safe serves. Manutoo, I know you love this update, and I like a lot of it too, but there is something with the serving. Please investigate this, because sometimes it seems impossible for one of the players to get a first serve in, and sometimes even a second, and other times it's normal.
Second set I started off poorly, but the rest of the set was good. Every game was pretty close-I had break points as Tati mentioned, but in the end he won the crucial points. It's funny because I played much better in this match against him than in Indian Wells when we played, but the score is more lopsided this time. Tati is a great player and I wish him luck!
