Hey Tennis Friends!
The women’s main draw has started, so, I figured that I would cover some of the ladies in today’s report:
The results for the matches that I featured are:
Olga Govortsova d. Mandy Minella 6-2, 3-6, 6-4
Despite the 29 point difference in their rankings (#67-Govortsova, #96-Minella), this was a pretty even match-up. I had seen Govortsova play doubles before (she owns 8 WTA doubles titles), but, I had never heard of Minella. Both of these players have been on the tour for about seven years!
Lourdes Dominguez Lino d. Grace Min 1-6, 6-4, 6-3
After a strong first set by Min, Dominguez Lino was able to make adjustments. Both plater had called for their coaches a couple of times. This was a great showing for 18 year old Min, but, the extensive experience of the 31 year old veteran, Dominguez Lino, was the key.
