Unfortunately Sara wasn’t able to pull off another upset in Auckland. She lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova, 4-6, 3-6. Sara started the match really well, and broke Kuznetsova in the first game. However, though Sara was playing well, Kuznetsova raised her level, broke Sara twice and won the set. In the second set, Sara was fighting to hold on, but in the end she just fell short.
Next week, Sara plays the Moorilla Hobart International. Lets hope she can carry this weeks good form to Australia.
