What a shame after that first set... Anyway, this was a great week for her and a good practice before the last Grade A of the year, the Orange Bowl, starting on Monday. Hope she does even better there!
Metropolia Orange Bowl International Championship, USA, GA, R64:
Jaqueline Adina Cristian (ROU) d. (Q)Emilie Francati (DEN) 57 64 75
A bit strange how the match unfolded. She led 42 in the first set, and she lost it, then led 51 in the second set and managed to close it 64 and in the third set her opponent served for the match at 54, but Jaq won the next 3 games and closed the match. Hope she does better in the next rounds.
Excellent win against Jokic, I was afraid she would get her ass whooped after that hideous scoreline in the first round. She must be dead tired now tho.
I was also fearing that she might get her ass kicked, though I'm pretty sure that's all there is to it: she's tired.
But she's through to the third round, which means that she'll be in the main draw at the AO. This was her goal for 2013. Started the year ranked outside top 300 and finished it as a top 70 player. Not bad at all
