Sania was definitely the player of the tournament. She was brilliant in all 3 matches, carried her partner in the SF especially and also partly in the QF. And she sustained her brilliance in the final, Cara complemented her superbly and the result was a complete rout! I didn't want to say this too emphatically, because it would seem that I was being partisan, but slice corroborates what I'm saying, and anyone who watched the three matches would have to agree.
In the final, the Singapore crowd was naturally behind the ethnic-Chinese pairing, but they gradually became less partisan -- and awe-struck -- as the match went on. Sania was simply awesome all the way, and the crowd acknowledged that to a large extent.
