Despite her serve stats being a bit iffy (only won 46% of points on second serve), her return stats were amazing (76% of points won on first serve return, 86% on second serve). She seems to rise to a higher level when she has to and likes the big events like Fed Cup and WTAs
It's a lovely 32 Degrees Celcius and sunny in Italy, so when her match starts at 4PM hopefully she will be ready to go
