Kremlin Cup: Kontaviet wins title against Ekaterina in a battle for ages

Feisty Anett Kontaveit overcame an impeccable Ekaterina Alexandrova, triumphing her 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 in an engrossing finale.

The game is the winner

Sometimes it is tough to see someone lose after putting on a gripping fight for three sets, people remember the winners, and forget those who have played their guts out. That is how cruel sports are in general. This game is a prime example of that. In the first set, Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova came on top 6-4 with the crowd behind. Ekaterina had taken a strong lead of 4-0 in the second, set to clinch the trophy but Kontaveit showed an amazing fight to win 6 straight match points.

The final set saw none of the players backing away and giving up the game. The game got decided in the dying moments and the margin really displays how much evenly fought it remained. Anett pipped Ekaterina in receiving points, edging her out 52-39, meanwhile, Ekaterina had her service game on point, grabbing a 70-62 advantage in that department.
