But yes, Aran is probably gonna play Q for WTA tourneys in Rio de Janeiro and Florianopolis. Maybe she is playing 100k Midland before going there but I don't know. (I have family in Midland, they've been living there for 20 years now ) I guess she will play Indian Wells and Miami straight after that?
Really good win from Richel
Nice to see Kiki winning as well against Vekic Good for her to play some more matches and getting a win here, should get her a bit more rhythm and confidence hopefully.
Kiki & Misa in doubles
Richel Hogenkamp, who had played only doubles matches for the Dutch team until last year, upset a higher-ranked opponent for the second day in succession to give her team a winning start.
The world No. 205 beat An-Sophie Metsach, the world No. 123, 75 63. After a tight first set Hogenkamp got an early break in the second and went on to complete her victory in style with a huge forehand winner into the corner.
Kiki Bertens beat Yanina Wickmayer 62 75, but only after a bruising second set. Wickmayer, whose game had gone awry in the latter stages of the first set, started hitting the ball with consistent power and went 5-3 up in the second, but Bertens clung on.
Having broken back to 4-5, Bertens won a marathon tenth game, saving set points in the process, and broke again to lead 6-5. When she served for the match the Dutch No. 1 was calmness personified.
