WTA ZHUHAI: What a Defeat for Roberta Vinci!

Resounding defeat for Roberta Vinci. The Italian, finalist of last US Open, was beaten by Slovakian tennis player Anna Karolina Smiedlova (first match in Zhuhai for her) with the final score of 1-6 0-6.

Match without history, in which Vinci has never seemed able to put seriously in trouble her opponent, who showed a level of tennis too explosive for the technical tennis of the Italian. Basically there was never a match, and the Slovak dominated during all the challenge.

From the physical / mental point of view, Vinci seemed to have taken a step back compared to the last match. In the last Match of the day, Madison Keys beat world No. 75 and wild-card Saisai Zheng 6/3 6/2. The semifinals are set: V.
