S. STOSUR/S. Stephens 7‑5, 6‑4
Q. For the Aussies it was a bit tense in the stands. How did you feel out in the court?
SAMANTHA STOSUR: Yeah, for sure the start was, I guess, pretty tense, like you said. I mean, she came out playing very well. I felt like I was struggling to kinda get into it, like I played a good point and a couple of bad ones.
She came out playing very aggressive and kinda got me off guard, I think. I went down that break and got a little bit mad with myself and then recomposed, and, yeah, really tough to come back from 5‑3.
I think that 5‑All game was huge for both of us. Luckily I was the one that got through and was kinda able to step it up and get on a little bit of a roll from that point.
