    could take a lot of the drama away by winning tonight.
    Looks like Kessler is playing.

    Ida fought back but lost 4-6
    Kessler was up 2-0, has lost 8 straight
    Emma crushed in first, little better in second but loses 4-6
    Zein salvages a first set 7 5
    Dimitrova 2 6, up 3 1 in second
    Berlin getting crushed, will be done soon
    Not much hope

    Ida continues the recent nosedive, down 0 5
    Kessler scrapping at 4 3 in second
    Zein up 3 0 in second
    Dmitrova wins second 6 1, nice rebound
    Berlin loses 2 and 2, disappointing

    Pulse still there, but it is faint

    Ida with a bagel second set for the loss
    Zein and Dimitova both up
    Kessler blows another lead, faces multiple match points and holds them off to reach 5 5 still down a set though

    Kessler with a quick break at love for 6 5, that last game had to be a bug momentum shift
    Zein one game away at 5 1
    Dimitrova at 2 0 in 3rd

    Looking good, Kessler at 3 0 and Dimitrova at 5 1
    Kessler match has been streaky so needs to keep the pedal down

    And beat herself is exactly what Michigan does, dumps easy shot at the net on match point
    Great comeback

    Absolutely epic comeback.
    They lost five of six first sets. Michigan had 3 points to win the match without us having even won a singles match yet. Kessler dug deep and found a way back.
    This is what I had been waiting on all year, one or two players deciding they would not let us lose when it mattered.
    SC, would be gravy, but now hopefully a win Saturday afternoon and we are in. The SEC tournament would be padding.

    Savannah St match should assure postseason. I will take it how we can get it, but man that last match was gift wrapped. UM player controlled 90% of the points down the stretch, but blew the sitters. I almost died when Kessler double faulted on her first match point, and sure enough she was dead in the water on the next point, but the opponent just dumps an open court volley into the net.
