A bit of both I'd say. Her backhand (whenever she didn't slice it) looked rank amateur. A bit of firepower and the best she could hope for was just the ball back in the court. As long as Konta, Anne or Bally don't have a disastrous day, it should be another straight sets win.
Laura vs Paula, as expected, will be the important one.
