This was my first tournament after having a break in New Zealand to train.
I qualified into main draw winning two rounds in qualifying and also won my first main draw match. In the second round I played a girl ranked in the 200s and seeded 6 in the tournament and I unfortunately lost 6-3/6-1.
However in 8 out of the 9 games I had break points and game points to win I just didn’t execute on them. She then went on to win the tournament beating a girl ranked 90 in the world in the semi-finals.
It was a tough draw coming up against a girl who won the tournament but it was definitely a positive week for me and I took a lot of takeaways from the match to help me learn and get better.
