Week 9 - ITF W25 - Tucuman, Argentina Clay


Pleased Fran won but if she wants to get past Ce in round 2 she'll need to be better than that.

Great. I think that means she gets her ranking back.

Looking over the data for that match, Gulin's somewhat pedestrian serve turned out to be the key metric. Gulin got 76% (75/99) of first serves in but won just 56% (42/75) of first serve points. She won just 25% (6/24) of her second serve points, whereas Jones took 46% (22/48) of her second serve points. The majority of points won by Jones were receiver points.

But big step up in round 2. Here's hoping she'll kick on from now.

Fran did seem to be improving as the match went on. There were less moon balls and more hard drives and the angles of her shots became more aggressive.

The weather meant Fran never got on court for her R2/L32 match on Wednesday. That has now been rescheduled for Thursday morning local time (.2nd after a 9 am match ).

All the other R3/L16 matches have now been scheduled for today, so if Fran wins she'll almost certainly have to play Seibold later unless the weather intervenes again.

 Well, she is certainly trying to end this match quickly, 2nd set; 5-3 serving for the match.

That looks a very good win for Fran.

More than was expected by someone who bet on Ce to win at 2/1 against

I don't know how long they normally give for recovery in such cases, but the match before Fran's next round is coming towards the end of the first set, so maybe an hour before the court is free.

 The regulations state a minimum of 90 minutes rest if she has played more than 90 minutes.

The match before has been completed. Fran's match is showing as not before 3.30 local, I.e. 6.30 GMT.
