Match Stats.
Anastasia commented “When I lost seven games in a row I don’t really know what happened – maybe I was a little stressed because I was missing some shots and she was so solid. Also, I was serving so well throughout the tournament and there were times today where I was struggling on serve.
“But I knew it was from my side, so if I just focused and kept fighting I could get it back.”
