Alexandrova did not digest

Two days after Russia’s victory in the Billie Jean King Cup, Ekaterina Alexnadrova was eliminated in the first round of the Linz tournament, where she was the No.5 seed.

The party may have lasted a little too long for the Russians… Less than 48 hours after her country’s victory in the Billie Jean King Cup final in Prague against Switzerland (where she only played a group, lost against Clara Burel), Ekaterina Alexandrova was in contention in the first round of the tournament in Linz, Austria, where she faced the Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko. And the Russian, seeded n ° 5, lost 6-4, 7-6 in 1h41. In this match marked by nine breaks, Alexandrova lost her serve to 3-3 in the first set and failed to return. In the second, the two players broke twice each, and it all ended up in the tie-break, where Tsurenko imposed his game to win 7-2. So here she is in the round of 16, where she will challenge Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck.
