Maybe, stranger things have happened! It just seemed so odd that she’d treat a fairly ordinary second serve the same way she would a good first serve. Couldn’t help but think what Heather Watson would have done with some of the utter powder puff second serves Jo got a look at. Did seem to be a mental thing from Jo’s end, Cirstea played some very good tennis but Jo kind of let her.
I felt slightly better about Jo's defeat yesterday when Cirstea played what seemed to be the exact same kind of match against Muchova (who I think is very good and going to be better), going down in the first set and then staging a huge comeback. She actually had three match points in the final set tiebreak and somehow didn't manage to clinch it. But clearly she has been having a bit of moment nonetheless.
