Sara Sorribes made a convincing start in the Zapopan Openthe WTA 250 on track that takes place in Guadalajara (Mexico) and in which the Castellón native, who defends the title, she won 6-4 and 6-1 in 2h06 over the American guest Katie Volynets (20 years old and 155th in the world).
Sorribes came from behind in the first set after losing his serve twice and from 4-2 down he endorsed his rival with a 10-1 run to win with some ease. She will face the Polish Magdalena Frech or the Mexican Renata Zarazúa in the round of 16 on Thursday.
“It was complicated. The first set lasted more than 1h 20′, that says it all; the nerves and tension of the first round always exist, but I’m happy with how I ended up playing”Sorribes noted.
The other Spaniard remaining in the singles draw, Rebeka Masarova, did not have the same luck as Sara.who started at full speed, with a 5-0 in his favor, collapsed in the first set and in the second set he also lost the advantage he had (4-2) to fall to the French Chloe Paquet (27 years old and 118th) by a double 7-5 in 1h42.
