The match lasted 1 hour and 13 minutes.
“Unfortunately, I’m going through a pretty bad time. In the last few weeks, I’ve been pained with injuries, now I do not feel too well. This hurts My game and My confidence. I do not play the tennis I want. In the first set I tried, I wanted, but when there was a chance at 4:3, at the break point, I missed a very easy ball. In normal conditions, I used to lived with such a chance. I’m sorry it was that way. Obviously, it’s hard to say something clever. In doubles, I still have great goals! I know I’m a very different player with a lot more confidence and faith. I’m always sure I’m ready to work and work hard. Sometimes this bring good results, sometimes not. I believe, in long-term commitment the hard work is important” – said Timi.
At the beginning of the 46-minute opening act, the Ukrainian player was the most accurate, after 1:1 she broke her opponent to 15, then led 3:1. Timi then got upgraded, in the sixth game she had three break points, and she used the third chance.
The Hungarian player had a great chance at 4:3, but Tsurenko hold her own game. Unfortunately, after 5:5, the Ukrainian player won her opponent’s serve to 40, then hold her serve from 15-30.
Unfortunately, the second set was already smooth. Tsurenko broke her opponent to 40, then to 0, and after 3:0, she hold her serve from a break point. Then Timi hold her service game twice, but had no chance of coming back.
