MaKiri, you badass motherfucker.
An absolutely solid match from Li'l Mash. She was just steady and showed some great touch and court sense throughout the match. She absorbed Dinara's power well and had yanked her all around the court. It would have been a tighter match if Dinara had the serving day she had yesterday against Dani. But she didn't. So it wasn't.
MaKiri's take on the match:
I think she was too passive. I remember when I played her in Australia, she was more aggressive. Now she's more like making kind of lobs. It's not really hurting you.
See you at the Open, kid. I have to think the Slam format of one day on, one day off, will help her. She looked a bit fatigued today.
