After dropping the first set, top seed Maria Sakkari came back to defeat Ukraine’s Kateryna Baindl in a two-hour and 46-minute first-round match. Sakkari had three set points at 5-6 in the first set before being swept in the tiebreak. She fought back in the second set, breaking the Ukrainian twice, and then dominated the third to win 6-7 (2-7), 6-2, 6-3. The world number seven hasn’t had much success on clay this season, but Tuesday’s victory improved her record to 5-4. She was a two-time finalist this year, finishing runner-up in St Petersburg and Indian Wells, but her best clay finish was a quarterfinal appearance in Rome. 

114 in the world Even though she has competed in lower level competitions, Arantxa Rus has been very reliable on clay this season. She also continued to play well on the court as she defeated Hungary’s Panna Udvardy in straight sets to win the Parma Open. Rus got off to a flying start, jumping out to a 5-0 lead, but Udvardy fought back to tie the score at 5-5. The Dutchwoman, however, rallied to win the following two games and complete the first set. Rus broke first in the second set as well, but after the Hungarian regained the lead, Rus broke once more to win the match 7-5, 6-3 in two hours.
