Lady(s) Tennis

This afternoon I went to the East West Bank Classic to see Maria Sharapova play against Michaella Krajicek. As if the traffic and sun weren't enough, the long 3-set match itself was SO painful to watch. It was break of serve after break of serve; neither Lady seemed capable of holding their serve. But, MaSha ultimately prevailed (7-6, 6-7, 6-4) only because
a) she won 10 break points to Krajicek's 9

and b) Krajicek had 12 double faults to MaSha's 8!

Exhausting! The almost 3-hour match finally ended at 5pm, and I didn't have the energy to stick around to see Ana Ivanovic versus Lucie Safarova. I also wanted to get out of the stadium before the "FAITH & Family" concert that was scheduled to take place at the tourney tonight. What???
