    Why can't ladies serve? Not trying to be snarky. Some women become very accomplished players. But they don't hold serve well. Seems like that is the biggest difference of women players. I guess they don't serve and volley very much either. But that is part of not having strong serves.

    I wish I knew, but it's incredibly frustrating.

    5-5 and Chang has a break point on Watson's serve 40-Ad...

    Anyone happen to have a stream by the way? I'm having to resort to live scores for this.

    I've got a commentary (but no video :|) on Bet365.

    I think it's in Japanese.

    It might not even be tennis to be honest, but I think they're saying Chang a few times.

    Oh my word, Chang has two break points, 15-40.

    Are you watching a stream or using a live score like I am?

    I don't know why this sort of thing still surprises me, it happens all the time :?

    Predictably unpredictable.

    I'm using a live score, unfortunately. Not surprised something like this is happening, but wow.

    Ah, and she breaks!

    Watson has an early mini break, leading 2-1 with the next two points on her serve.

    Wins the first, leads 3-1.

    Chang gets one back, trails 2-3 but on serve.

    Watson reclaims the mini break, leads 4-2, Chang serving.

    Watson to serve, 4-3 with a mini break.
