Re: Sveta on European Clay | 1st stop in Prague: 2nd round vs. Brengle
won 57 64 63!
I was able to watch the 2nd set from 5-0 to 6-4, obviously not a good timing as Sveta really did not play good there!
Brengle tried to keep playing on Sveta´s backhand and Sveta was way too passive there and it is never a good sign when someone like Brengle is more aggressive than you are, fh was ok but also some mistakes there, serve was not really effective and she almost screwed it totally as Brengle was close to get it to 5-5 in 2nd set.
She was a bit more aggressive on return at 54* at least, finally put more pressure on Brengle there and the serve from the American is really a weakness, so Sveta just had to go for her shots there.
But it obviously is not easy to play with much power and pressure on such a slow clay court, looked so cold again there today, next up is Puig, another tough opponent, hope that Sveta can improve, good luck!
