There were many close games, especially in the first set.
I'm happy that she got the easy win and drew someone against whom she could practise her shots in a match before it really matters. Return of serve was dire and she missed many easy sitters, especially in the early stages of the match.
Got better from the baseline, though as the match went on. Highlight to me was when she hit one of her trademark 'drop shots' at 5-3 0-40 that dropped rather long. She already went back to her bench not even noticing (and believing) that Ce somehow hit it long.
