I agree, that's not a really bad loss for Akgul.
She squeaked into the main draw in the Poitiers 100K. Here's her quarter: ouch!
(3)Elena Baltacha (GBR) v Valeria Savinykh (RUS)
Virginie Razzano (FRA) v Q/LL
Kristina Barrois (GER) v Akgul Amanmuradova (UZB)
-- and they're playing doubles together here! (seeded #1 )
(ROU) v Q/LL -- at least a chance for revenge for Akgul if she gets past Barrois -- let's look at it that way.
Sorana did go on to win the Limoges title, so she's in great form right now.
