Quebec City R1: (WC)Abanda/Bovina def. Broady/Marand 6-1, 6-7(3), 12-10
Not sure if anyone else noticed, but Elena Bovina has surprised to be in the draw and to win their first round match with local star Francoise Abanda.
Bovina has only played twice this year, losing in the 1R of two 10Ks in Moscow (once as a qualifier). These two events were her last since 2014, where she played doubles at 50K Saguenay.
Coincidentally, her last ITF MD singles win was in 2012, against Marand at 50K New Braunfels, TX, before she lost to Larcher de Brito in 3.
A match against Hlavackova/Hradecka looms.
Singles: 128 CHR: 113
Doubles: 77 CHR: 62
