I could have cried with relief for Laura. How brilliant was she to stay so tough and get the win today, even when she was playing below her best? That's the mark of a real winner right there, to get the job done no matter what, even if nothing seems to be working. Mind you, she does appear to have picked up where Andy left off in the past in terms of ruining my nerves lol.
I was surprised to see Kvitova looking so desperate at times. They all want to win, obviously, but every time Laura came back at her Kvitova looked like she was about to burst into tears. I've seen her play a few times since she won Wimbledon and she just doesn't look as if she is enjoying it much out there.
Still, brilliant result for our Laura.
