Camila Giorgi def. Mariana Duque-Marino 6/3 6/4
Wow. I totally fall in love this morning with this young italian. She reminded me a lot Maria Kirilenko, and was wearing a great yellow/white skirt that fitted her perfectly. Ok, I stop slobbering and talk about the match. "Giorgious" was clearly the one who was dictating the points. She hit the ball very cleanly and did some superb volleys (with a great touch for the backhand-dropshot volley). Duque-Marino, supported by some members of the Colsanitas Team - including Carlos Salamanca (who lost yesterday against Marc Gicquel), could only defend and counter-punch. She was losing 3/6 *0/2 before the italian started to make some (big) mistakes. It seems to be the problem of her game so far : when she's on, she can beat many players, but she has no plan B. The second set became very tight, and the last game at *5/4 was epic. Duque-Marino had some break points, but missed some return of serves. She saved three match points but the fourth one was the deciding one after another return of serve on 2nd serve out by the colombian.
