Anna almost won the first set and the final game went to deuce twice. Irvin is known for being really strong in the first set so Anna did very well. She came out very strong in the second and third sets and Irvin is a very good hardcourter playing her homestate (mine too).
If she comes into her match confident with Elena, she will do well. She has to have the same fire in her.
