The start of a brand new tournament and this time on a glass court outdoors with cameras roaming the court to get the best view of the matches. After a delightful opening ceremony, I was up after the first match was played.
The court was working my way as I played right into my game in the beginning. This happened the other way round when Annie used the court to her advantage playing winners from every space in the court to win the second game.
In the third set, I had to increase the intensity and kept her moving. She still played her shots but finally made her first error in the last game.
I’m very pleased to win this first round match against a left-handed player as I was expecting anything to happen while we were on court.
Next up is Alison Waters from England…
