RR here -
I have nothing funny/stupid to say - just, here is the real deal. We saw some weird, and some just routine, matches today. But this, this is the real deal. We're watching the end of the second set - Penetta's final hold was an insane game - and now the tiebreak - GAK - what's gonna happen? Every point is just brutal, ball-whacking craziness. Penetta was up, then not, now Zvonareva's got (another) match point. COME ON FLAVIA! Whoa she got a break there - Zvonareva hit a ball long, which she has barely done. She's got another match point on her serve... here it comes... another completely f-ed up battle-ass point and Flavia finally nails it!
Is Zvonareva gonna cry?
Don't get me wrong. I would. We love Z's emotionability. Now Penetta's got a set point... BWA she got it! This is the real deal - blood and guts people. Let's see what the 3rd brings...
Wow. Zvonareva really fell off a cliff. in the 3rd Her knees? Her mind? Who knows. But Penetta hung in there. A let down after that incredible second set. But anyway, there you go. Go Penetta! Bed time for me.
