Sadly, Aravane lost 1-6 in the third. 4-6, 6-3, 1-6 to Foretz Gacon. Not a bad loss, though, considering she hadn't played in many months and was coming off a hip injury, AND her opponent served 16 aces with only 2DF. Hard to find many opportunities when your opponent is getting that many free points. But Aravane served almost as many aces as doubles (6 to 8, I think) and around 60% 1st serves for the match, so it wasn't a bad day for her in her return. A nice three set fight against a hot serving opponent is a good start to her 2013 campaign, and something to build on for the next tourney.
