Good to see Daria reaching the finals at least and not too shabby a showing against Gasparyan who has a monstrous serve. However, I must say that I expected Daria to achieve more than just a single 10K title at this stage, especially considering what Yulia, Elina and Irina have achieved. Hopefully, she will start to pick up points real soon.
She won 1-6 6-0 7-5. Kind of a ridiculous scoreline, especially against an unranked player but the result is a W in the end. By the way, Jasmine Paolini is a beautiful name.
R1 of main draw was kind, with Daria drawing WC Carlotta Orlando of Italy. Carlotta is ranked 1238, so Daria really should be winning this with ease, but when does she ever with with ease? She could face #1 seed Erika Sema in R2.
