A Day Of Upsets - LEIGH and BERGMAN have comeback wins against DAVIS and HEPBURN
What looked liked a final match setting up between number 1 Bette Davis and number 2 Katherine Hepburn has now become something else. I will be the first to admit my surprise as 4th seed Vivien Leigh and 3rd seed Ingrid Bergman stormed back today to win their respective semi-final matches to set up a showdown starting immediately. Leigh, who was trailing Davis at one point by 9 points came back to win 37-36 in a match that had several ties throughout Saturday. While it's a shame seeing another 1 seed being knocked out, Leigh is more than enough of a worthy opponent. Meanwhile in the other match, Hepburn was firmly in control of her match, at one point leading Bergman by 11 points. Well Ingrid's fans showed up today and she surged to a 30-30 tie with Kate and then never looked back. She would go on to win 34-30. Impressive comeback wins by Leigh and Bergman to set up what should be a fantastic finals match. Kudos to Bette and Kate for making such a strong showing as well. What a thrilling finish we had today. I decided to go ahead to start the final match tonight and have it conclude Monday evening at 6pm. Good luck to both women.
