It might not have been pretty (well, the play) at the end, but it was entertaining, and generally high quality, and its the future of women’s tennis, so strap in mo’ fuckers!
Just a brilliantly fun match to watch really, the two of them crawling away in the third set, not being able to hold from 3-1 until Caro is serving at 4-5 (after breaking Vika to stay in it) hits an insane running passing shot… saves a match point… hits another crazy running winner off a Vika drop shot…. well, cue Vika breakdown (smash ball into crowd, smash racquet into court… and then again on the changeover…) and we have ourselves a Danish winner at 7-5 in the third. Not to mention the insane game at 2-2 in the second set that I believe was close to 20 minutes and must have gone to like 15 deuces (I saw it up to 11). And I’m just really glad Caro started bringing the heat after barely showing up in the first set (she won 13 points and won a big fat breadstick in 27 minutes). Since this is Caro’s first match, she’ll go to 1-0 and Vika now to 1-1.
