Yes. I also think it was to a large extent a match up issue. Monica does often struggle with Spanairds who play in the classic Spanish manner of getting lots of balls back and a playing with discipline. And Estrella played a great match, credit to her. Yeah, it's bit of bummer of a result and obviously in a match as closely contested as this one was it wouldn't have taken much more for it to have shifted into a Monica victory. But it wasn't to be and that's life. I'm still pretty happy with Monica's form going into the AO.
