“It was an interesting start of today’s match. I do not really know what can I get form Robson. I knew she is a great player, but I did not see her performance after the injury, so I didn’t know, what to expect on the court. So maybe I was a little bit nervous at the beginning of the match. However, what is important: I could control it. From then my game started to work very well. I’m glad with the quarter-final 🙂 “– said Timi.
The match lasted 59 minutes.
Timi played well from the beginning, so gave no chance for Robson. The Hungarian youngster saved two break points at 1:1, then she won her opponent’s service game to 40.
At 4:1 Timi broke the British player to 15. Then she hold her serve to 30, so she easily finished the opening act.
The second set was a little bit more tighter. In the beginning Timi broke her opponent twice, while Robson once. After 3:1, the Hungarian player lost three break points, but it was not a problem.
