Sara had an easy match in the first round in Rome. Her opponent, Timea Bacsinszky, retired when Sara was leading 6-0, 3-0. She seemed to be hindered by a stomach muscle. Of course it’s hard to say anything about a match against an injured opponent, but at least it seemed that Sara’s thigh injury, which she sustained in the doubles final in Madrid, wasn’t hindering her much. In the second round, Sara will play against world #5 Samantha Stosur.
