It was obviously a difficult match for both players but Babsi somehow overcame that as she defeated #78 Janette Husarova at the US Open 7-6(3) 7-5 in the first round. As part of a deal made before the match Babsi will have to buy Husarova a meal in New
York at any restaurant she chooses.
In the first set there were many breaks of serve, neither player could hold a lead but Babsi took the set in the tie-break 7-3. In the second set Babsi broke in the first game, all games were held on serve until Husarova broke back to level the second set 4-4, then the next 2 games were held on serve and Babsi broke and then held her own serve to take the set 7-5 --> www.barbara-schett.net
