Probably the tightest and most frustrating match i've seen from zhang all year. Any 50/50 situation, she managed to create an unforced error and gift it to Sloane. Sloane tried real hard to let her back in this match, but Serena was just mentally blocked for whatever reason.

Did not expect Sloane to get a win today, so I'm very happy she did. Baby steps, who knows, maybe she's back.

Some great hitting in this match. Sloane let the match get unnecessarily messy from 4-1 to 4-4 in the 2nd but woke up in the nick of time. Onto R2.

She cared! Hopefully she can somehow save this embarrassing season with a good showing here and next week.

Sloane didn't look good in the first set but Zhang helped her out.

Who knows if this win might spark Scone into life.
