    You meant LXR retires after TTY wins the first game and leading the 2nd game by 9-x? :)

    Hopefully, this needless loss will spur WSX to work harder and be more forceful in her game; otherwise she might be content to carry on as she is now.

    Pedersen used to be the weakest player in both WD and XD. But she plays so well so far in this tournament.

    I saw only the first half of G1 and the last half of G3. In G1 it looked like WSX was unbeatable. Too strong, too good court coverage, too good placement. So impressive to see her when she's in command.

    But in G3 the sheer moxy of TTY pulled out the victory. Very entertaining. I can't wait to go back and see the bits I missed.:)

    It proves that allowing your opponent to dictate the rally , no matter how good your defense, is never the right strategy - and WSX was doing too much of that in G2 and G3, esp the latter. Let that be a wake-up call to fine-tune and improve her game further.
