I watched the first set. Edina played very well. She was so consistent and she was playing really well. There were an lot of nice rallies and good points from both. It was a fun match . Edina was calm and patient but aggressive. She had a lot of winners. Valentyna played well and fought hard but Edina was more experienced and more consistent. Valentyna kept banging her racket and swearing in Ukrainian but she tried to run down every ball and worked hard for her points. It was a good match but Edina was just a little better and played well on the important points. I left this match after the first set because Valentyna took a bathroom break and I didn't feel like waiting for her to come back, and on my way out I saw that Asderaki was watching this match
Qualified after rallying to defeat Donna, 26 64 60! On top of that, she drew qualifier Stefanie Voegele in the first round! Edina defeated her on clay earlier this year. Great opportunity for her to make the second round here for the first time.
