Then in the second set she broke my serve, but I managed to came back. But I lost th eset int he very unlucky tie-break. Int he third set I felt, that I will lose the match. Because, Vinci played better and better, she hit many winners, made only few mistakes…Her slices very sharper and sharper…But I didn’t give up, and at last, I won the match. This is tennis! It’s interesting stat, that I won the 51 percentage of the points…I’m happy” Timi said after the match.
