Silvia lost today in Budapest QR1 to the #4 seed, Cabeza Candela. At least she won one set: 64 36 61.
Silvia really is one of the most inconsistent players (even by Croatian standards). This week she wins a set off the #231 player (and has another close set). Last week she loses in straights to an unranked player who has won only one singles or doubles match ever--and it was, of course, against Silvia
Silvia really couldn't have asked for a better draw in QR1 of Bad Gastein, world #418 (current & c-h) Nicole Rottmann. Depending on which Silvia shows up to play, this could either be very good or really bad. After all Silvia did take Cabeza-Candela to three sets last week, but she also lost in straights to an unranked player the week before that, so who knows what happens today. Rottmann got destroyed by another Croat (Abramovic) not long ago, so I'm hopeful we can make this a tradition of sorts
P. S. This'll be Silvia's third attempt at getting a WTA win, let's hope it'll be third time lucky. Last year in Budapest she got a MD WC but got destroyed by Peng, and last week she played that three-setter in the qualies of the same event (Cabeza-Candela). Fingers crossed!
