Re: R2 Hobart: Risa Ozaki def. Lucie Safarova 26 63 75
I like Lucie, but her top 5 year was a bit of an anomaly in her career - she was a top 20 player for so long before that and she caught a couple of good draws and peaked at the right times in 2014-15. But even if I don't think she would have sustained that anyway, this has been a pretty poor return from injury. Nearly a year back and her ranking outside the top 60 is exactly reflective of her level.
Good win for Ozaki though. Interested to see how high she can get. Third WTA-level QF or better in the past half year.
