Re: Elise Mertens
Elise plays the Trofeo Bonfiglio in Italy (GA) where she's the 3rd seed after Lottner and Bencic.
She made a clean start winning 6-0 6-2 vs. the italian qualified Stefanini and 6-2 6-1 vs. the czech Pantuckova (ITF-43).
She'll now meet the 15th seed Kasatkina in 3rd round ranked 22 and quite in good shape (only player to take a set from Bencic last week).
2nd seed in doubles with Ipek Soylu she won 6-2 6-2 in R1 against Gorches/Van Zyl and 7-6(8) 6-1 against Grimm/Teichmann in R2.
Keep it up Elise
