Not exactly good news. Sure, she'll get the benefit of playing a few warm-up matches, but it's still a lot of effort for just 1 point. Some wild-card in MD R1 would've been better, but OK, sometimes you get what you want, sometimes not...
Donna safely through to R2 (actually that's an understatement...) after a 6-0 6-3 win over Jegiolka. Although expected (by me at least), still a very nice result considering that her opponent is top 400 with a c-h close to 300.
Next up is probably Wienerova (#263, c-h 128), but let's wait and see if it'll come to that. Donna has nothing to lose in R2 so hope she gives it her best out there.
Well done Donna.
I don't think she should be afraid of her next opponent since i believe Donna already has quality for (atleast) her opponent's current rank. Also, she is well warmed up from 3 matches, used to court and conditions so i'm hoping for a win.
