Martinez Wins First Match In Bali
Conchita Martinez came, and she conquered, beating Jelena Kostanic of Croatia 6-2 6-4 to reach the second round of the Wismilak International on Monday. In the only other main draw singles match played on the opening day, Japan’s Saori Obata came through 7-5 6-3 against American Jill Craybas.
Troubling her opponent with her heavy topspin, eighth seeded Martinez made a perfect start against the left-handed Kostanic, breaking serve in the second game. The Spanish veteran then held off break points at 2-0 and 4-2 before breaking again at 5-2 to claim the set.
In the second set, the Croatian’s strong groundstrokes placed her opponent under pressure after Martinez failed to convert three break points for a 3-1 lead. Kostanic then broke Martinez to love to lead 3-2, but Martinez rallied to level at 4-4 and then broke again for the match.
