Yes Irena wasn't able to control her game vs 3rs seed/n°110. After a decent 1rst set scoring 4 games...she was bagelled in the 2nd!!
Irena couln't revenge her last year 2nd rd loss to Sandra
and even won less games...last year she lost 6/2 6/4.
The week after, she got a WC at Marseille $50K challenger...and once again after a good 1rst set (lost 7/5), she couldn't handle the same rythm in the 2nd lost 6/2 vs n°137 compatriot Johansson.
At Valladoid $25K, she succeeded to qualify and ran to the 2nd round beating qualifer n°531 Nagaraj before falling to Top seed/n°145 Parra Santonja (another 2 handed both sides player)...once again after resisting in the 1rst set losing in the tie break, she gave up in the second losing 6/1.
Last week, she travelled to England to play at Felixtowe $25K where she qualified for the main draw before falling to WC n°613 Stoop
This week, she's competing at Frinton by sea $10K and she is qualified for her 3rd final in an ITF event
after Hull and Tipton (both in Great Britain too). She'll try to get a revenge vs...n°581 Stoop.
Next week, she is commited at $25K Les Contamines as WC in the Main Draw
