Radwanska recovers from 1-6 in the first set to beat Zvonareva in Istanbul

Vera Zvonareva must be devastated after her final round-robin match in the Red Group of the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships. The Russian won the first set against Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1 and after losing the second with 20 unforced errors committed (that's five games!) and starting the third by dropping serve, she rebroke her opponent and established a 3-1 lead and 5-3 lead. However, the decider consisted of Radwanska's series of games and Zvonareva's series of games and after ten games and three match points wasted by Zvonareva they were 5-all. Then Zvonareva lost her serve again and in the final game Radwanska took her opportunity and won the match 1-6 6-2 7-5.

Zvonareva lost her opening match of the tournament to mighty Petra Kvitova 6-2 6-4, but the following day defeated world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki 6-2 4-6 6-3. As for Radwanska, she lost her first match to Caroline Wozniacki, and tomorrow she will face Petra Kvitova. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)

    It was a great match. But a bit on and off from both players.. I knew Radwanska is a fighter, but I didn't expect she could recover such a gap! It's still an interesting week! :-)
