AO 2012: a close defeat in the second round

13/01/2012 – Timi unfortunately could not reach the qualifying finals of the Australian Open today, losing a very close match against French Irena Pavlovic.

 

AUSTRALIAN OPEN (GRAND SLAM COMPETITION, HARD COURT), WOMEN’S SINGLES, QUALIFYING 2ND ROUND
Irena Pavlovic (French)-Timea Babos (Hungarian) 6:4, 1:6, 8:6

 

The game was tight throughout; in the first set we saw a “break-battle” in which the French was the one better. But the second act was won smoothly by Timi.

 

In the final set Timi came back from 2:5, and then saved a match point at 5:6, again became equal, but then Pavlovic won two games and reached the third round of the qualifying.
