Another 10K Finland:
R1 d. (Q) Daria Ponomareva RUS (NR) 6-0 6-0
R2 d. Laura Gulbe LAT (#1221) 6-0 6-0
QF d. (8) Diana Bogoliy UKR (#904) 6-3 6-3
SF d. Eveliina Virtanen SWE (NR) 7-6(2) 6-2
F l. to (4) Emma Laine FIN (#786, former top 50) 3-6 7-5 0-6
Too bad that she couldn't win it all, but she must have been tired. She wasn't losing games the first two matches and then played opponents with similar rankings and was losing more games. Also in the final I expected her to lose since she was playing a former top 50 player from Finland in Finland. The third set bagel just shows probably how tired she was
Maria also played doubles but lost the final 4-6 6-7(2) to (2) Bogoliy UKR/Laine FIN. Not a bad loss once again since she played Laine and must have been tired obviously. I wonder if she would've had more energy for singles if she skipped doubles this week (the doubles final was played the day before the singles final)
Anyways, Maria is up to another career-high, 298!
She has won 43 of her last 49 singles matches
