What a way to end the year, congrats Ana! It wasn't easy, and we could've expected that it won't be against a pesky opponent like Puig, but she battled it out. Puig did help a bit towards the end, but still wonderful to see Ana not giving up and trying to grab the last train when being 2:4 down in the 3rd. It was also kind of cool to see how relaxed she was about it, like she didn't just make the biggest win of her career, sort of like "alrighty, that's another one...". Hope that means she is aiming much higher than 50k's.
P. S. Croatian tennis facebook group says she'll play 3 ITF's in Australia, all 25 000$ prize money.
No points to defend during this timeframe so an excellent chance to add ranking points!!!
