Hey, don't sweat it. We had what seemed like decades of being told Wally Masur was born in Southampton, and he has a much more tenuous connection with the country of his birth.

Good that Laura won comfortably. The other teenagers are nipping at her heels with the likes of Annika Beck, Madison Keys, Yulia Putintseva, and Donna Vekic all winning their first round matches too. And they all seem to have very winnable second round matches.
