Re: Doha R1: (LL)Daria Gavrilova def. Anabel Medina Garrigues 46 63 63
You've got to hand it to Gavrilova, what a perfect way to take advantage of a lucky loser spot! She has a brilliant record of winning WTA main draw first rounds on the few occasions they have come her way so far - she won a round at s'Hertogenbosch last year and the Australian Open this year so that makes three out of three in 2012-13. She will get another big rankings surge with all those points.
Yet another dreadful result for Anabel - her third consecutive loss of the season and she has not gone beyond the second round of any event since Roland Garros! Last year, she only made qfs at Strasbourg and Fes, but this year looks even worse, so the slump from top 30 to almost out of the top 60 looks set to continue.....
