Hana's Comments after her loss to Cho in Midland last week
"I had my chances but (Cho) made the good shots in the tie-breaker," Sromova said. "I was real nervous early and I made too many errors. It was a fight for every point in the end."
The unseeded Sromova fell behind 3-0 in the second set after having her serve broken once. She broke Cho's serve and narrowed the gap to 3-2 but Cho broke Sromova's serve again and held on for the win.
Sromova continues to improve as she reached the semifinals two tournaments ago, was a finalist in her last tournament and finishes as a semifinalist in Midland. She's travels today for a tournament in Memphis, Tenn.
"Every match is different at this stage," Sromova said. "I'm having the best results of my career. I'm happy right now."
