YONEX player Angelique Kerber (VCORE Xi 100) made it through to the fourth round, defeating Slovakia’s Daniela Hantuchova in an hour and 47 minutes in round 3. Kerber’s win came just in time, as the day’s events were interrupted due to a power failure immediately following her victory. In their fifth match against one another, Kerber took advantage landing six break points, hitting one ace, and snagging 17 winners. The final score was 7-5 6-3. Kerber lost in the fourth round against Eugenie Bouchard, but has had really strong performances throughout the tournament.
The boy’s singles also started, with young player Jaume Antoni Munar Clar (EZONE Ai 100, PTGP125) getting off to a solid start in round one, defeating Petar Conkic in straight sets, 6-2 6-4. He’s pairing up in doubles with Pedro Martinez Portero to face Daniel Appelgren and Wei Qiang Zheng. Keep an eye out for this young player’s future matches – we’re expecting great things from him!
