Monterrey started well for Sara, with a solid 6-2, 6-2 win over Stephanie Dubois. Sara started really well, and won the first ten points of the match. Then Dubois started playing better and until 4-2 both held their serve, but then Sara broke again and served the set out for 6-2. The second set followed a similar pattern: there were 3 breaks early in the set, then they both held serve, until Sara placed the decisive break at 4-2. All in all, it was a good match, and most importantly, she was moving well and her knee looked ok.
Today, Sara and Roberta will play their first round doubles match. They are first seed in Monterrey and will play Cornet/Dulgheru in the first round.
