Sara is through to the 3rd round at the US Open, after she beat 28th seed Alisa Kleybanova in straight sets: 6-2 6-3. She started the match well, by breaking Kleybanova early in the match, and even though her first three servicegames were all tough games (she faced 7 breakpoints) she won them all, and took a 5-1 lead, to win the set 6-2. In the second set, Sara started well again, and quickly took a 4-0 lead. Kleybanova fought back, but it wasn’t enough, and Sara took the set 6-3.
In the third round Sara will face an Australian player: either 7th seed Samantha Stosur, or unseeded Anastasia Rodionova.
