Agnes Szavay (all together now, sports media--it's pronounced SHAH-veye) won the China Open today, defeating Jelena Jankovic 6-7, 7-5, 6-2. Szavay, who was down 0-5 in the second set, saved a match point (with a second serve ace) at 1-5. Szavay was also up 5-0 in the first set tiebreak, but Jankovic saved three match points to win the set. The match lasted three hours and appears to have been one of the year's real thrillers. Szavay now enters the top 20.
I was thinking that Tamira Paszek was going to be the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Newcomer of the Year, but it all points to Szavay now, doesn't it?
