Ostapenko was down 2-4 in both sets but won 6-4 6-4. Great that she won after that thriller in Birmingham

Alona Good effort from 2-4 down in both sets. Double faults still an issue (10) but decent serving stats.

Lol. That was fast. Just five minutes ago, she was down 2-3.

Much needed win for Aljona after the choking in Birmingham to give her some confidence to Wimbledon. As Gavrilova would say, she's good from behind.

As for Buzarnescu, it serves her well after that disrespectful attitude.

Good job, Aljona!!!

Buz continuing the fall.... after Wimby, Bucharest, and San Jose come off, she will be wayyyy out of Top 100. Those 3 events are 700 of her 1100 pts

I don't know how she won the 1st set, she escaped 2 service games when she was down 15-40 and 0-40.

Two erratic players. Anything could happen.

The injury really, really derailed Buzarnescu's upswing

I am happy that Ostapenko could escape from tough service games - playing doubles on on the day after probably helped get over the loss to Martic.

Aha, Buzarnescu is Murray's secret mixed doubles partner then?

I can’t decide if the match against Sloane will be a thriller or an error-filled mess.

Osta will win in straights, IMO - much like the Vekic match against Vekic at Wimbledon last year except a bit closer because of Osta’s serve.

But at least Sloane will get “some” grass court matches pre-Wimbledon, unlike last year.

I think she’ll win in straights as well. Sloane used to be really good on grass, but her serve had more pop and she was fitter.

Although, 2016 and 2017 - she was injured or just coming back from injury. 2018 - she arrived on grass the Friday prior to Wimbledon <img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/laugh.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Laugh Out Loud" class="inlineimg" />
