Kremlin Cup: Ajla, Anna, and Bernarda advance

The first round of the Kremlin Cup has begun and three players have already qualified.

Australia’s Ajla Tomjanovic beat Russian Luidmilla Samsanova 6-2, 6-4. Tomjanovic edged out Samsanova 40-32 in service points while she had a 31-22 receiving points edge in the game.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Anna Kalinskaya overcame Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska 7-6(7-5), 6-4 in a grueling game. This is the second time in a matter of few days that Dayana has engaged in a heated battle after she got knocked out by Paula Badosa in three sets during the WTA BNP Indian Wells Open.

USA’s Bernarda Pera sneaked out a 7-6(7-3), 6-3 win against Serbia’s Aleksandra Krunic. Pera got outmatched in service points 37-34 but covered the distance through receiving points, where she had a 39-24 edge.

In the next round, Anna Kalinskaya will battle it out versus Maria Sakkari, Ajla Tomljanovic will square off against number-one seeded Aryna Sabalenka and Bernarda Pera is going to face Anastasia Pavyluchenkova.
