well we didn't see the whole match. We sat next to her parents and her brother and they were so annoying so we left after one set and came back in the middle of the third. It was a good match, long rallies, not a lot of errors but in the end paola just started to play better and deserved to win
It wasn't her parents or brother, just friends. She only has one brother, that's Vincenzo and he now works at Club Med in Italy as a tennis coach, so rarely travels with her now. She travels with her fiance who is also her coach, he's a very nice guy but quiet.

Rita played way too defensively against qualifier Linetskaya and lost the match because of it. She had opportunities to attack her weak second serve and instead retreated to the baseline. Better luck in the doubles with Flavia hopefully.
