Was leading 4-0 in first set, but let Kalabina come back to 5-5 (got broken three times in the process). Won 7 games in a row to 7-5 5-0, but got broken again while serving for the match (also had some BP's against at 6-5 in the first). Broke back immediately to clinch the match.
Would have been nice to come back with a title, but still a good week I'd say. A few tough matches where she was able to turn it around after losing the 1st set. 7 matches won here, so good to have these matches and hours on court to help with her comeback.
She's still on the Q-list for Antalya, starting April 7th and on the acceptance list for April 14th.
Also, I heard from a very reliable source () she is trying to get a WC for Q's at the 25k in Chiasso the week of Arpil 21st, and that she'll be using her first SR to get into the 25k in Tunis, May 5th.
Bibi doing well again this week, reached another semi-final in Antalya, she beat fellow qualifier Wushuang Zheng 62 46 61.
All these wins here will hopefully give her a nice ranking to start from. Of course she still has her protected ranking but all these points will definitely help.
Still she will not get a ranking after this tournament because 3 seperate occassions of winning points are needed to get back on the ranking. Until now she has collected 19 points, which would give her a ranking of around 850.
