Well Anna's through to meet Amelie, but only just!!
A very similar match to the one in Auckland, it was 2-6 6-4 7-5 back then, this time it was 6-7 6-4 6-4.
Anna was 3-1 in the 1st set, before going 5-3 down, before managing to take it to the tiebreak. She looked out of it in the 2nd set, when she went 0-3 down and it was a double break, but she got it back to 3-3, before losing serve again, but then took the next 3 games to take the set.
In the 3rd set, Anna went 2-0 up, before it went to 2-2. Anna then went 5-2 up, although only one break of serve, had a match point for 6-2, Gagliardi held, then Anna I think was broken to love, to get it back on serve at 5-4, but thankfully Anna managed the break right at the end, so it was a real close one, but she's into the next round and it's all about getting that win!!
I hope from now on Gagliardi gets kept apart from Anna in draws, because she seems to really give Anna a hard time.
Anyway onto Amelie, which I think will probably be tomorrow, let's hope Anna can do it, I think she can do it, today was one of these days that you have to win even when you don't play great, which is really important for Anna. Good luck against Amelie, you can do it!!!
