The set went to a tiebreak, and at 2-4, Zahlavova Strycova missed a smash for the first time in the match.

Zahlavova Strycova saved a set point, but then hit a ball long, which gave Wozniak the tiebreak and the set. In the second set, the Czech player became increasingly frustrated.

This is how Zahlavova Strycova lets off steam.
