How to use match in a sentence?
I feel definitely more comfortable going into that match than, for example, today, i had never played( McHale) before, so you feel like you don't really know what's going to happen. Earlier, Latvian 11th seed Anastasija Sevastova became the latest player to be stuck down with a viral illness at the tournament. Sevastova was down 5-0 in the first set of her third round match with Estonian 21st seed Anett Kontaveit when she retired. Her departure came less than 24 hours after Venus Williams was unable to continue Venus Williams match on Sunday, also citing a viral illness. Men's third seed Alexander Zverev also said on Monday after losing to fellow German Jan-Lennard Struff that he too had a virus. Among those women still feeling healthy, three-times grand slam champion Angelique Kerber battled back to beat Russian qualifier Natalia Vikhlyantseva 3-6 6-1 6-3. Kerber took a while to warm to her task on a cool morning in the California desert.
The bomber’s target was those government people and local policemen who came to watch the match.
