Let’s get going and proceed towards this Australian tour session and get closer to the first Grand Slam meeting of 2016: once left Brisbane, let’s approach Melbourne and stop by Sydney for the Apia International.
After the 1st round loss to the future WTA star Belinda Bencic, our Sara Errani is ready to start over again in New South Wales’ capital’s Premier against her latest doubles partner – Spain’s n.2 and n.7 seed here – Carla Suarez Navarro.
The Italian warrior almost went solo in the preexisting match records, since only 3 times out of 10 in her carreer the Spaniard managed to overcome – taking perfect advantage of Sarita’s temporary weakness – like during Australian Open 2013 R1 (6-4, 6-4). Accordingly, Sarita won’t take part into Doubles in order to get into her best shape for the incoming Slam tournament.
Sarita’s original path to Apia International’s title has changed as n.2 seed Aga Radwanska and n.3 seed Petra Kvitova notified their withdrawal after the draw was already set up: they will be replaced respectively by the qualifier Daniela Hantuchova and the lucky loser Polona Hercog, who may be facing Errani into quartefinals.
