Lost the first set to 2, after being 5:0 down so she is starting to play better as the match goes on, judging by the score. I would imagine that she is nervous, and that is probably a part of the reason for the score, although anything more than a set would be a miracle today IMO.
An expected loss, but still a great week for Silvia
Absolutely. A few months ago it would've seemed impossible for her to qualify for a 50k and win a MD match. Not to mention that she played a competitive set against the top seed. Her career (finally) seems to be moving in the right direction.
Looks like (surprise, surprise...) no stream coverage of the doubles final.
Very recently we were watching a top quality stream from an American 50k throughout the week, and now it seems like not even the finals of either singles or doubles will be available from a French 50k.
