Sadly it is over in R1 for Anett as she goes down 46 63 46.
She told she felt she played a rather good match, except last games, Garcia started to take more risks when she was down in 3rd and it paid off for her.
Still has problems with shoulder, took painkillers the last few days but she didn't think it affected the match much.
Told she's gonna see doctor later and check the shoulder, possibly pulling out from the doubles draw (with Kasatkina, against Christian/Olmos).
Wants to play as much as possible this year, will play in Ostrava next.
Really disappointing result, she could have won this but faded a lot in the last few games and Garcia ran over her. It’s great she’s become more consistent (and I mean 26-13 is an excellent ratio), but I really feel like she was too defensive at the end, plus threw in some random errors. Such a hard draw though so it’s hard to be disappointed, she most likely would have struggled in every match this year.
Hopefully the shoulder is ok, it would be nice to see her play Doubles but it’s probably better to rest if it’s a concern. The European tournaments this year are going to be packed so she doesn’t have much to lose.
