Tennis Australia News with R2/Section of the 2021 Yarra Valley Classic, Daria Gavrilova v Serena Williams Game Report

by

Serena Williams fired off the preparation she needs at Margaret Court Arena. When she beat fair & square against Australian Daria Gavrilova. Both sets at 6-1, 6-4.

She may be age 39 right now. But still ranks in the Top 10 amongst women’s singles of Tennis. With the mental and physical execution to build off a strong start. Before she moves to the 3rd round.

And Serena will get to face Tsvetana Pironkova from Bulgaria. Her opponent is ranked 137 at age of 33. And she came off a decent US Open last year in the quarter final. But did not do much past Round 3 in the French Open. Despite Serena forfeited the previous round.

It will be interesting to see what Tsvetana can make up to Serena. When they meet again on the court soon. While Daria Gavrilova did her best. It may not be easy when the 452nd seed goes up against her idol. Where she was easily beaten 1-6 after the first set. But did improve in the second set despite two points short.

The now Australian citizen is age 26 with room for improvement. Despite her loss against Serena. She can better as it goes with experience to make our country proud. The work does not stop as Daria will pair with Simona Halep. When they take on Barbora Strycova (Czech Republic)/Belinda Bencic (Swiss). That doubles game will be on tomorrow 2.15pm. And will play on the Court 13 within the Melbourne Park Tennis Precinct.

We wish Daria all the best going into the main tournament next week. And enter there as the home grown wild card seeds.

For now it has been a great start of the Summer of Tennis. While the women’s action goes on. We look forward to the men’s section with the ATP Cup tomorrow.
