Why close the roof after hippo lost the first set? They know Kuzny
hates indoors, they screwed up the momentum Kuzny was having to favor
hippo. Let me guess? Imagine the ratings in America with FOUR Russians
in the SF! Rigged.

While I think it's ridiculous and wrong to stop to close the roof in the
middle of a set, they were following the rules, which apparently didn't
allow any discretion in the matter.

Svetlana had the match on her racket in the second.

I was hoping she'd take it, too, but it wasn't the AO that blew her
serving for the match, or even Serena all that much.

Take a deep breath, take a walk, cool off, plot a bit, and serve again.
