"I WILL USE MY CRAZY DRAGON CLAW ON YOU."
In what was apparently an insane match, Nails came back from a 0-5 first set tally to beat Kim 76 63 to take her first Premier title in Sydney. I mean, really.
I didn't get to see the match but it sounds like Kim went completely wonkballs after 0-5, DFing and UFEing as though she were playing Nadia. "I think instead of donating $100 or how much it is for aces, they should do it with me for the double faults. Might bring some more money to the victims in Queensland. Yeah, wasn't feeling it today."
As for Nails, that's a big win that should raise some eyebrows in Melbourne. She's in Vika's quarter, Masha/Venus' half. With semifinal points to defend, she's gotta come in riding high.
My favorite quote from Nails' post-match presser:
Q. Did you genuinely think you could come back from 5‑Love down?
NA LI: No, I didn't believe. Yeah, but after ‑‑ I mean, I do it.
