Sori just beat the 32nd seed in the AO R1, Barbora Strycova, 62 76(5). Admittedly Babs has not been in the best of form but still it's a decent start to the AO. Before that Sori played Hobart, she qualified by beating Aussie Gabriella da Silva Fick then Begu, then lost R1 to Wang Xiyu, 63 16 16.

Tough one next, she plays the young Coco Gauff who took out a very erratic Venus, Coco is very quick and athletic and gets a lot of balls back. I suspect Coco may be too consistent for Sori but fingers crossed.

I could see this match going like Coco’s previous slam matches with Hercog and Babos. I hope Sorana can prove me wrong though.

Was exactly the same as those matches. Sorana won the first set, had the game to beat Coco but couldn't quite hold it together enough, almost won but lost 75 in the third. Was up a break in the third, had many chances. A little heartbreaking.

Sorana has just reached R3 of the (admittedly depleted) US Open.
Beat McHale in R1, and just had a good win over Konta in R2, 26 76 64.

Sorana won her first round against Anna Blinkova 6-2 6-1 at the ITF Dubai 100k+H challenger. Very promising score line considering Blinkova was the 4th seed. :)

And now she’s into the final! Beat Cocciaretto in R2, Krejcikova in the QF, and Hercog in the semis. Hopefully she’s not too drained from her last two matches and can put up a good performance against Siniakova.

Sori's having a good run in Istanbul, beating Katarzyna Kozlova and Anastasia Potapova in straight sets to reach the quarters, where she will meet the winner of Vera Zvonareva and Fiona Ferro.

Now in Istanbul semis! Ferro retired after Sorana won the first set 6-4. She faces Kostyuk - great chance to reach the final.
Good luck, Sori!
