(9)Anhelina Kalinina (UKR) v (wc)Harriet Dart (GBR)
Dasha Ivanova (USA) v Qiu Yu Ye (CHN)
(wc)Anastasia Mikheeva (GBR) v Jelena Ostapenko (LAT)
(6)Iryna Shymanovich (BLR) v Natalia Vikhlyantseva (RUS)
This is the toughest section IMO. Dart defeated Ploskina in straights in Roehampton R1 last week. There are also, Shymanovich or Vikhlyantseva who could beat her, and Ostapenko who won Roehampton yesterday basically destroying everyone.

(6)Fett/Rosca (CRO/ROU) v Grende/Ye (INA/CHN)
She was 4-6 0-3 down at some point yesterday. Then came back to 4-3 in set 2, and I believe play ended there because of rain. Today, she was able to win a tight 2nd set and be solid in the 3rd. Congrats, great fight!
R2 vs. Dasha Ivanova, who also struggled in her R1 match. GL!
