Lost 36 46 against Ivanovic. She played a solid match.
She said: I played a good match, I was very solid, and I was good enough from the baseline to compete with Ivanovic and all the players I faced in last couple of weeks. I also attacked a lot, you could see it from the stats (more than 30 net approaches, good percentage). In the next couple of weeks we'll be working on some things, that keep me away from the top 20.
She really blew it in the third, as usual, by not using her chances, being too passive or rushing the net on terrible approaches at times and making mistakes she wasn't making in the first two sets.
Before every season in the past few years she was saying how she's improved, how the off season work is paying off etc. Well some things never change and that's her mental approach.

I could see the match. The girls played well. But Kata injured herself at the knee at the end of the match. (2-1 in Super Tie Break). She did not seem good after the match, and her coach Biljana seemed worried...
