(3)Greta Arn (HUN)
v Akiko Omae (JPN)
(wc)Storm Sanders (AUS) v Yuliya Beygelzimer (UKR)
Irina Khromacheva (RUS) v Tereza Mrdeza (CRO)
Julia Glushko (ISR)
v (23)Mariana Duque-Marino (COL)
Q1 winners in bold.
Considering Duque-Marino is no good off clay, I was even expecting Julia to win more easily, but a win is a win, and her 3-set W-L ratio at slam qualies just keeps getting better and better
Ideal draw for the next round as well, but not for the Q-round. Kind of reminds me of her USO 2011 qualies, when she lost to Wozniak in Q3 shortly after the latter routed Shahar on tour. May be the same with Arn here.
Late P.S. the back-to-back R1 losses in the 125K "WTA challengers", especially the second one, were a disappointing finish to a good hardcourt season.
