Lera . Friedsam is one of those coming youngsters, but I expected more from Lera in this, seeing the picture, Lera as well. How was the match, Rix, was she outplayed?
Would have loved a different emotion, but it is a great picture
Valeria Savinykh - Aryna Sabalenka
Vitalia Diatchenko - Ekaterina Makarova - Alexandra Panova - Valeria Solovyeva
Good luck to all russian players
Mainly outserved (for instance, Friedsam scored 4 aces in her first service game in the second set). But Val didn't really have an answer to Friedsam's game.
I also missed her figting spirit, as if she knew from the beginning it was a lost match...
Really hated it to see her like that..
