Erica and Mary exemplified what we have been talking about all year in terms of overcoming adversity with Erica being down 5-4 in the first then winning 3 straight games to take the first set and kept the momentum winning the second set, and Mary dropped the first, won the 2nd in a tiebreak and took control of the 3rd winning 6-3."
