Great win for MJK yet again
She has improved which is great viewing for her future. Her serve was key during the 1st set, got a bit shitty on the 2nd set as she started to complicate things. Was dominating Rodionova with her forehand and even with some good backhands during the 1st set, Arina looked clueless on what to do. In the second set got to a 2-0 lead and looked like she would get it easy, Rodionova fought back and started putting the balls on court with more depth affecting Maria a little bit, who started making more errors and getting a bit tense. 3rd set was Rodionova making to many mistakes, Koehler was more impressive on the 1st set. She got tense when she was about to serve for the match but eventually got it, was nice during the interview, ans I didn't know but her coach is not there with her, was talking about her parents who where watching it at 5AM in Portugal
If she puts a good amount of 1st serves, she has got a great shot against Karina Knapp, if her serve doesn't work she will find it hard. Still a bit brainless when it comes to tight moments, was just keeping the ball in play and playing to Rodionova's body and not really using the court specially from the 2nd set on. Hope she copes well with the moment and has a good serve day and she can get it.
Would be behind amazing for her to play against Jankovic
