Hmm, but I think she has points coming off from a $25k final next week, so she might drop a few spots... so hopefully she can at least qualify for Palermo.
Yes, last year she reached the final of Zwevegem (25k) and the week after that she reached the semi final in Petange (75k). So she has a quite a few points to defend. So hopefully she does wel in Palermo and Portoroz
ALG def Aran 7-6 6-3 after 1hr and 50 minutes.
Aran put up a good fight. I thought it would be "easier" for ALG. Aran herself had said she has problems when her opponent is playing with lots of power. Not a bad score against ALG.
Close 1st set. Double break in the 2nd. ALG was better at converting her BP.
In the 2nd set Aran won only 23% of her 2nd serve. In the 1st set it was 68%
But 46 points for her WTA-ranking. Hopefully she will have a nice draw next week and win a round (or more). She had some points to defend.
