We are back side to side to our Sara Errani for the last WTA hardcourt American meeting before clay season. This week we will take by storm the beautiful venue of Crandon Park on Key Biskayne island in Miami, Florida.
Sarita is ready to join this 2nd Premier Mandatory after the loss to the Ukranian Lesia Tsurenko (3-6, 4-6) occurred in the city of Indian Wells, California, that gave her some extra time to adapt to new conditions: in fact, the weather in Florida is way more humid, nearly the opposite to the desert’s proverbial dryness the players used to play in just a week ago.
Miami’s Singles draw, which took place the day before yesterday, granted a R1 BYE to our warrior – as n.14 seed – and full rest until Friday, when she will face the winner of clash Osaka v. Parmentier (6-2, 2-6, 6-2). Thus, Sara’s first opponent will be the young Japanese (’97) turned Pro in 2013, who’s quickly climbing up the world ranking this year thanks to several positive results such as Australian Open’s R32 and Acapulco’s quarterfinals that allowed her to step from the 170th to 104th Singles’ position.
The match Errani v. Osaka has been scheduled on Friday at 12.30pm ca. on Court 8.

In addition to Singles’ path, let’s put aside the sudden as much as profitable results of the “Odd couple” (w/ Oksana Kalashnikova) that lead to a stunning Semifinal round in Indian Wells’ Premier Mandatory (4-6, 3-6), and welcome back the Italian-Spanish duo – which is currently in n.9 position of the Race to Singapore. In fact, our Sara Errani and Carla Suarez Navarro will be back on court against Simona Halep and Daniela Hantuchova, who received a wild card to enter the draw.
