Btw the other qualifiers both won their matches in 2 sets
Yeah I'm not surprised about Fichman because not only is she a bad match-up for Sorana but she almost beat her at USO. Pliskova is a surprise though. Anett is starting to do the 2nd Set thing a lot where she starts badly and then she relaxes and plays well and then she becomes complacent so loses. At the end she had opportunities which she didn't have earlier so it was a bit of too little too late. Still, pretty great for her First serious WTA event in almost 2 years
