25K Port St. Lucie, FL, USA:
QR1 d. (WC) Madison Bourguignon USA (ITF Junior #87) 6-4 6-1
Really good for Valentini to win this match, especially since her opponent was pretty good

One of TF's own was there:

QR2 l. to (13) Jennifer Elie USA (#421) 5-7 3-6
No shame here . Valentini was much closer this time than when they played last year in Brussels

That first win was really important, and this tournament was pretty good for her compared to how she's done lately

I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
