Silvia lost a third set heartbreaker to Meghann in RG and lost in straights to Bovina in the first round of Eastbourne 7-5, 6-0. She's now playing in the consolation Plate matches for first round and qualifer losers and she beat Nicole Pratt today 6-4, 6-1. Hopefully Silvia will get in some more match practice on grass before defending points from her Wimby QF showing last year.
Obviously she was not at her best against Vivi as indicated by all the errors but at least she pulled through and saved some much needed points. She'll have to pick up the pace against Amelie - more first serves and net rushes if she's to win.
You can do it Silvia. Relax and have fun. No Pressure.
