Patty Schnyder earned the first WTA main draw win of her second career in front of a home crowd at the Ladies Championship Gstaad, saving five match points to surge past compatriot Amra Sadikovic, 6-4, 6-7(7), 7-6(6).
“It feel pretty cool," Schnyder said after the match. "The match was really crazy. I haven’t played too many matches like that. But the longer the match went, I got better, and the rallies got better. By the end, it was really great tennis.”
