Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...
A win is a win indeed.
Maria was bad obviously but McHale was also very good, getting everything back and going for winners too.
It's R2, she could have had an easier opponent and she'd have won in easy sets most likely.
Having said that, I think she really needs to improve for her next match. Ana (probably) can be more difficult.
