She beat Ling Zhang today 63 61 at 50k Versmold, easy points I agree with Elwin, hopefully she can make that step to the top-150 and the top-100. I think that if she played consistently wel l throughout the year that she could be ranking inside the top-150 already. Just like many other players she has these rough patches in her year where she loses valuable points. She has played at all slams now, so that's a nice step already.
And into the semi's! Beat (6)Siniakova 26/64/63! She was down 26 02 but came back She was up 50 in the third but closed it out on time. Yesterday she was down 26 13 by the way.
Playing Witthoeft or Friedsam in the semi's.
Well done Richel That's a really good win over Siniakova
29 points for a SF in a 50k. Needs those points, last year she had a good couple of weeks in July/August so some important points to defend. She's been ranked around 180-200 for a year now, really want her to take that next step into the top 120-150.
EDIT: Against Witthoeft in SF. Played last year 2 times on clay. Carina won both times. Time for revenge now
Richel I saw a big part of the second set and she was playing so so well She was hitting deep and heavy groundstrokes as well as ridiculous dropshots. She was playing really aggressive and she was rushing to the net to finish points. Just outplayed Witthoeft really.
Chance for a first 50k title! 48 points in the bag as well She will be up to around 153 in 2 weeks, but her Bastad points are coming off too I think so she will probably not make it there.
