Nicole Vaidisova defeats Flavia Pennetta, reaches round three of the US Open

Thirteenth-seeded Czech Nicole Vaidisova beat Italian Flavia Pennetta 6-2 7-6 (7-0) in the round two of the US Open.

I watched only the last part of the match, but I can say that Pennetta had her chances since her opponent was emotionally fragile at moments. What happened was that Vaidisova simply wasn’t able to finish the match when leading 6-5 in the second set. She wasted five match points and let Pennetta make a break. It left the Czech so frustrated and angry that she broke her racket. Pennetta evened the result to 6-6 in the second set, but was demolished in the tie-break by failing to score even one point. That was disappointing. I was hoping for the third set.

After all, the favorite was victorious and she will next play No.18 seed Shahar Peer of Israel. This should be a match worth watching.
