Cincinnati qualies : Mathilde Johansson (4) def Mashona Washington 6-3 2-6 7-6

Good win for Mathilde despite first serves and DF low stats.

Tomorrow 2nd round vs Stéphanie Dubois who is on fire. Hope she'll reach MD.

i had NO confidence following the score!

I was almost certain she was losing this!

Well done for sticking to it.

Mathilde v Stepahnie - tough for both players. Could be good. I see Steph taking this

Mathilde is really better on clay. But she's a fighter. Dubois is currently better on hard. But Mathilde is also in progress. Sure that Amélie will give her good advices before this good match.
But she has to improve serves stats.

I saw the second set. Thought Mashona would win the third. Mathilde was playing badly with lots of errors, while Mashona was really invested and "on". Mathilde does have a laser-like serve and plays a hard, deep game, especially for her size - she is quite thin. Mashona looked great.

By the way, I have no idea how Mashona even got there in the first place... as of late last night she was not even in the qualies..... how does that work, anyway? Would she have traveled on very, very short notice late last night or early this morning? Or would she have gone to Cincinnati in hopes of an opening?
