Hingis won the third set 3-0 after Williams decided to abandon the game with injury problems. However, she lost the first set 0-6 but was able to win the second 6-3.

The American world number four seed had strained her left foot in the second set and was unable to carry on for much longer.

Williams's injury problems turned the match around for Hingis: before the second set she was completely at the mercy of a strong opponent with powerful strokes. Only halfway through the second set Hingis started deciding the match in her favour.
