Laura then won the 2nd 7-5. 3rd set, Laura went 3-0 up, but it went tits up from then on, and Hsieh won the final set 6-4 to win the match.
Congrats to Hsieh and unlucky Laura
Yeah, interesting match. Laura looked out of it, 5-3 down, saving 5 match points. She won the next 7 games on the bounce and took a 3-0 lead in the 3rd, seemed in control. Only to fall away again and Hsieh fought her way back, winning 6 games to Laura's one.
I'm gutted for her on the one hand, but very happy on the other, it's all experience, hopefully this loss fires up her to come back and win more. She still has a lot to improve on which is a good sign as she can get a lot better. Very good few months overall. She should be proud of herself. Long way to go yet though, this is just the beginning.
