Sasha had a 2:0 h2h against Karin, but both on clay. Will lose qualifier points from last year.

I liked the way Alexandra fought in the final set.

She had a very high 70%ish first serve % and tried apparently to work from the baseline. She even got to deuce in the final game.

I see good things from her (not groundbreaking though) coming up. Just steady success.

Hmmm I like both of them, but I guess Karin needed this more

Alexandra seems to still be in a slump..:sad:

Karin is a very good player, she's just been unlucky with injuries and illness. Hoping she can stay healthy this year. :)
