Either the commentary is slightly ahead of the pictures or the female commentary (is it Martina Hingis?) is giving us a master class in demonstrating how great players can see things happening before us mere mortals.


Navratilova. And yes, she does.

It's Navratilova, she reads the game like it's a child's book.

Go on girl. Has anyone ever won this before without dropping a set?


Had to check, but yes.  Never been done at the US Open in the men’s game, but all other majors have been won by players without dropping a set.   The list of players who have managed it is basically a who’s who of Women’s tennis though. (link)

I understand that it is bad timing but she’s bleeding. You can’t expect the match to carry on without her getting patched up.

 

I can understand being pissed if I was regaining momenteum though.
