Lost her first match of 2012 to eventual winner Zheng 4-6 6-3 6-4 in the first round of Auckland. But she had a great attitude after the match and believes she played really well.
She faces defending champion Gajdosova in Hobart R1 tonight, another tough match-up. H2H is 2-2, with the Australian winning the last encounter 7-5 3-6 7-5 in Pattaya QF last year. But Gajdosova was a mess in Hopman Cup. Hoping Ayumi can get some revenge and get the first win of the year! Ganbatte~
