A pity, she lost 5 and 2 against Ana, but actually had excellent chances all through the match. She could have easily pushed the first set to a tiebreak, and in the second set she led 2-0, then got broken back and at 2-2 she had Ana at 0-40 but lost the next 8 points which was really the last straw.

Overall, I think she showed a great deal of promise. She does need to train the crosscourt backhand more and the kick second serve more. Her down the line backhand is beautiful but she does tend to rely on it a bit too much, and it still worked often against Ana but because Ana's fh is the strong side, she really should have gone to the bh more often. I think though that her level has clearly improved from a year ago, which is a good sign for the future.

The final point had Rita hitting some beautiful shots to keep Ana on defense but she missed the final volley just wide.

Bojana seems to be playing very poorly of late. Possibly partly injuries, partly distractions like her engagement, partly mental issues oncourt. She has only won a maximum of 3 games in any match this year. So it was a great draw for Margarita and she rightly took advantage. I'm looking forwards to the match with Ana, although that will be much tougher.

Easy win, as expected. Bojana is a walking bye these days.

Stats for the match:



Looking forward to the win match against Ana.

WTAi Podcast: Russian Revolution II

WTA Insider Courtney Nguyen | Get to know Margarita Gasparyan, Daria Kasatkina, and Elizaveta Kulichkova in their own words as they reflect on their Australian Open successes.

Published February 09, 2016 12:14



On this episode it's all about the Russians. Senior Writer for WTA Insider Courtney Nguyen previews this week's tournaments in St. Petersburg and Taiwan and look to the new generation of Russians - Margarita Gasparyan, Elizaveta Kulichkova, and Daria Kasatkina - who are eager to put their stamps on the tour. Their collective success is an important development for a country that has produced two No.1s in Maria Sharapova and Dinara Safina, swept the podium at the 2008 Olympics, and won three of the four majors in 2004. There has been a notable gap in talent after Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova's protogenic rise. That's about to change.

Gasparyan, Kulichkova, and Kasatkina are all in action this week and after a solid last six months, they are all in the Top 100, which means you'll be seeing more of them in the main draw at tour events. So now's the time to get to know them.

Gasparyan on switching from a male coach to a female coach, former player Elena Makarova: "She's not just a coach. She's a friend. I like to work with a woman. When you have a male coach you cannot speak about everything with him. Maybe just tennis. When you have tennis you can tell all. How you feel, tennis, boyfriends, everything. I'm relaxed. I don't think a lot of tennis all the time."

Kasatkina on the Russian resurgence: "I think it's because of Russian character. We have not the best conditions. So that's why we fight all the time for everything."

Kulichkova on her friendship with Kasatkina: "We're not so alike in terms of liking the same things. We probably like the three same things, everything else is different. But still we're best friends. It works nicely. So if someone says friendship in women's tennis doesn't exist it's a lie! We are the proof. It exists."
