WTA Wrap: Aliaksandra Sasnovich makes strong start in Moscow
Aliaksandra Sasnovich continued her good recent form by making a winning start to her Moscow River Cup campaign.
The Belarusian enjoyed her best ever Wimbledon performance earlier this month when she reached the fourth round, and she didn’t show any difficulties at all in switching from grass to clay in Russia.
The fifth seed was dominant throughout and easily bested Johanna Larsson 6-1 6-3.
“I am happy the way I played today. I liked my forehand and my serve. I’ve made zero double faults. And it’s great for me” she said.
Meanwhile, Anastasia Potapova claimed a stunning 6-1 6-1 win over Viktoriya Tomova to earn what was only her second ever WTA Tour win in less than an hour.
