Amazing. Really amazing.
What can I say really? The kid absolutely took this match to Maria, whose service woes finally caught up to her. But even putting the serving problems aside, Oudin absolutely 100% punched her way through this match. She outhit her and even more impressively, she stayed just as competitive. The Kid (yeah, that's a capital K now) absolutely earned this one.
Maria called a MTO in the third for what looked like a right elbow/arm issue. Augh.
This picture makes me happy. Tough go, Masha. Go heal that shoulder.
