Match lasted more than 2.5h! Greet was up 3-0 in the final set but Aliaksandra came back to level at 4-4.
Eventually, it was Greet who pulled through to reach the 2nd round at a Grand Slam tournament for the very first time :love:
Getting closer to the top-100 :cool:
Greet will now play 29th...
First Grand Slam MD win for Lena! (y) Good to see her win this fairly quickly after her draining first two weeks coming away with the title in Hobart! :)
Tough draw for Bernarda. But she is really struggling in slams.
Pretty good for a first match for Karo, but some silly mistakes were present, of course.
Mladenovic played quite well in seconds set, unfortunately for her, her serve failed her when she needed it most.
Anyone watching Sevastova for the first time today would not believe you if you told them she had reached the second week of slams on numerous occasions.
Swept aside there by Ajla, who didn't do too much wrong.
