Good news for fans of Ana V., she is through to the second round of Edgbaston 25k (HI) after a 6:2, 6:2 win over the third seeded Arantxa Rus! It was their 3rd meeting and the second win for Ana over a player who was at a career-high #61 as recently as August 2012.
Next up for Ana is a match against a qualifier Giulia Gatto-Monticone, a player whom she defeated easily in both of their previous meetings, the last of which happened two years ago in Bath (HC). This definately looks like a nice chance for a quarterfinal appearance. The winner will face either Parmentier or Brianti.
