ALF Much needed points before her SR expires.

Anett Truly struggling right now.

Rest in Peace Bally!

ALF played a perfect match up to 6-3 5-2, then some nerves crept into her game. Good serving when she needed it though. Kontaveit was unimpressive all match and didn't deserve a comeback in this contest.

Now ALF will go on to play Bertens again, will be tough for her but then it's not clay this time.

Oh man. My colleagues daughter used to play ALF in juniors and then lost interest in tennis. Don't wanna imagine what could've been. Played against her when she was 13 and never in my live had a woman on the other side o the net who was hitting that hard.

This has been such a rough stretch for Kontaveit.
This is a pretty welcome win for Friedsam though.

Anett reached the Miami semis and the Stuttgart final, losing only to Barty and Kvitova... since then hasn't won consecutive matches wth is going on with her?!

This is what you get when you're too cool to play Jurmala unlike every other relevant Baltic girl under the sun

How old were you when you played her?

It must be about 10 years now, so 34 or sth like that.

She really gave me some trouble (my colleague's daughter, not Friedsam) and I usually dont have any trouble when playing with women, cos most are dead as soon as you put on some top spin.
