Istanbul R1: (Q) Rybakina d. (7) Siniakova 3-6 6-2 6-4

I know Siniakova hasn't been in great form this year, but what a fantastic comeback win for Elena!

I just tuned in at 1-4 down in the final set and Rybakina was *15-40 in that game and then had to save 2 further break points, before reeling off 5 games in a row. Her best ranking win since that Garcia match over a year ago.

Possibly the defending champion Parmentier up next, but she'll definitely fancy her chances.

Keep going

Siniakova is at the moment great draw for anyone.

Siniakova has been a virtual doubles specialist this year. It’s time to switch her focus to singles again.

Elena with some really promising results ever since those St. Petersburg points are off. Her dad’s celebration was hilarious especially compared to her non-reaction.

Rest in Peace Bally!

I caught a good chunk of the match, and came away quite impressed with Rybakina - it was my first time seeing her.

She served well, hit fearlessly, and had more than enough power to bash through the clay. She moved Siniakova around quite well the whole match, and it probably took a physical toll on the Czech as the match wore on.

Heck, Elena was even willing to come to the net to shorten points. The only problem there was that she missed a lot of makeable volleys - the intention was there, but the execution was not.

As for Siniakova, she was getting teary-eyed toward the end of the match (yes, again) after seeing the youngster erase the deficit between them. She just can't afford to keep getting down on herself - the mental aspect really has to improve. Still can't help cheering for her, though.
