Lera's been out for almost a month. Interesting to see what form she brings to the USOQ.
(12)Michelle Larcher De Brito (POR) v Ekaterina Dzehalevich (BLR)
Elina Svitolina (UKR) v Olga Savchuk (UKR)
(wc)Alexandra Mueller (USA) v Beatriz Garcia Vidagany (ESP)
Amra Sadikovic (SUI) v (21)Valeria Savinykh (RUS)
Tennis Fool, I read your short summary of the match in GM. Sounds like Lera was lucky in this one. What made the match turn around after set 1? And not being in best shape, did she look injured?
I didn't stay for the whole match, just watched the beginning and it didn't look great for Lera at all. She didn't look injured, she just could be better fit, imho. Probably what's been stalling her progress.
