Olga was beaten 61 60 by Gagliardi in 2nd round of qualies.
Have to say that the score should be something like 62 62. Most of the games specialy in 1st a]set were close, and Gagliardi won them after deuces. However Emmanuelle was too strong for Olga. She was playing a perfect angle game moving Olga from left to right and scored a lot of points after perfect drop shots. Olga was hitting harder then Gagliardi, she had some great winners and even volleys, but too many mistakes, was a bit too late for some shots.
About match with Voracova. Olga was 41 and 53 up in 2nd to lose the set 57. She lost her service game at the start of 3rd set but then thankfuly she started to play better
Renata had big problems with serve , many DF. Olga was crushing her serve with return winners
Game was postponed at 3-1 (40-30) in 3rd set and finished later under a balon.
Overall I saw Olga last year in Torun 25k and I can say there is a big difference in her 1st serve. It become much stronger then last year
all the time the 1st serve is around 150 -165 km/ph and with a good 1st % - Renata had many problems to return it correctly.
Olga didn`t look happy after her victory over Renata. I guess she knew she should have won in 2 sets. That`s good she must be very demanding for herself.
Keep improving Olga :-)
congratulations on a victory over Renata
