VOSKOBOEVA LOSES TO IVAKHNENKO
In the first qualification match of WTA Baltic Open 2019 the owner of the wild card Galina Voskoboeva lost to last year's quarterfinalist of WTA Moscow River Cup Valentyna Ivakhnenko 1/6, 2/6.
On the centre court in 1 hour 8 minutes the Russian beat her opponent from Kazakhstan in an emotional match executing 66% of her first serve, but making 2 double faults, while Galina Voskoboeva committed 3 double faults and her execution percentage of the first serve was only 45%.
"The match was emotional for me, I needed support, so I called for the coach, even though I was up. The following opponents (Marie Benoit and Akgul Amanmuradova) are familiar to me, but I will tune in to my tennis", commented on her victory Valentyna.
In the next match the Russian will take on the winner of the match Marie Benoit/Akgul Amanmuradova.
