I hope this is not just a random result and it means that Ilka is back. Although they've never met before this RG, about two years ago I wouldn't have been as surprised as I am today if Ilka defeated Konteveit.
Ilka Csoregi (ROU) d. (WC)Estelle Cascino (FRA) 76(7) 76(2)
And what a great fight this was!
Her opponent was way tougher than I expected, although she's #643 in the WTA Rankings. Ilka was 1-3, 2-4 and then 3-5 down in the first set but managed to break and went into the tiebreak. In the tiebreak she was 1-5 down and I was almost sure the first set is gone, but she came back and won 9-7.
In the second set, it was again the Frenchwoman who broke first to take a 4-2 lead, but Ilka broke her back immediately and then broke her serve once more for a 5-4 lead. She then served for the match, but was broken to love They both held serves after that and went into the second tiebreak, which Ilka won 7-2
I also like her to beat Schmiedlova. She does have less experience as Uncurv said. However, I find it interesting that she played quite a few other Romanian players this year from what I see by looking over her results. She lost to Mihaila and Dascalu (in Medias, Romania) and she defeated Cristian 2 times, and Ioana Rosca, Bulgaru, and Ruse once.
