Tina defeated Ai on clay 2 years ago,
now another rematch on clay
Ai had done the impossible so far,
after going down 0-2 on clay thus far,
she defended her 3R points by defeating Patty,
and grabs the final 16th seed in RG........
at 27, she is facing a clay specialist Tina, 22,
who owns her only title from clay,
will the veteran prevaill, or will Tina the clay courter win?
