Welcome to the first hardcourt edition of Abierto Mexicano TELCEL – in Acapulco: Sara is the n.2 seed in this week main draw and even thought she didn’t take part in 2014 edition she will attempt to extend her winning streak and go for a third singles title after her 2012 and 2013 victories on clay.
First round was smooth as silk: Sara displayed a tremendous ability to adapt both to the new surface and new climate conditions against her qualified opponent Lucie Hradecka. She was able to determine all the rallies, not letting the Czech set up counter-strategies or pull herself together. A great performance by Sara that led to a 6-1, 6-3 victory.
Unfortunately, second round couldn’t be that similar since robo-Puig appeared on the other side of the net: Sarita could do a very little confronted to a such a burning number of both service and return winners (6-1, 6-1).
Sara will continue her journey towards the upper continent next week: she will get closer and closer to the first part of the American harcourt season after a stop on the Mexican clay of Monterrey.
