Aran should capitalise on this. A R3 wouldn't be bad at all after the inconstancy she's showing lately.
I don't think its much better that Razzano won. Apparently she played amazingly well and from the highlights I believe that. Although, many players have had great upsets and lost second round (e.g. pironkova over venus australian open R1)
I agree a R2 and chances of R3 is not bad after her recent results
I think if you asked her if she prefer playing against Serena or Razzano in R2, most likely she would have picked Razzano. At least against Razzano she may have a chance of winning. Sure, playing against Serena would be a great experience. But a very short one I'm afraid
Razzano came prepared, watching videos of Serena and believed she could win this.
Not sure what to think of the R2 match. Is Razzano able to pick it up again after that long match and big win?
Aran had a good R1 draw, and then Hampton was/got injured. Unfortunately there was no stream, so we don't know how well she played. She did got broken a lot in that match.
Just hope she plays well and we'll see what happens.
Good luck Aran
