Elina started the first set a bit nervous and went down 0-2* but subsequently started playing better once she settled down. She hit the ball harder and tried to play more aggressively which worked quite well throughout that set. She had some chances on Alizé's service games but Alizé was pretty clutch when it came to saving BPs, and so it looked like it was going to a TB at *40-0 5-6. However, Elina suddenly lost the plot for some reason and lost five points in a row to 5-7.
For most of the second set she lacked a proper gameplan and started playing more defensively. Again she couldn't take her opportunities and quickly went down 4-0. Even though she won 3 more games in that set Cornet's win never looked in doubt.
Net play was awful today by Elina. Couldn't volley and deal with Alizé's drop shots AT ALL.
