And there it is: Potapova breaks to take the first set 6-4. The number five seed is in shtuck!
Kerber, who’s been injured lately, is in a right old row against Potapova. Serving to stay in the set at 4-5, she’s pulled back from 40-0 to 40-30, and when Potapova climbs right into an inspid second serve, she’s forced to play a deuce.
