Solid Collins heading into the third round

A perfect start for the American, with her usual aggressive tennis, when she took a break from Scarry’s first serve, to take an early lead. Helena herself would have chances to win back the break immediately, but her rival extended the favored margin in numbers. The fate of this first set seemed increasingly clear with another break for Danielle, who was leading 5-1 on the scoreboard. Sakkari would flaunt his experience, forcing an irregular pass from his opponent, and would take breaks twice in a row to fully participate in the fight, with the chance to equalize with his serve. However, there was a new break, under this pressure to look for a draw, and Collins took the first set 6-4.

Wanting to change the slide quickly thinking about what was to come, Maria started the story positively for her in the second set, with a break in the first half. But again, the Greek herself let a favorable moment pass, with two straight spells for Collins, who now had a 3-1 advantage in numbers. Sakkari partially restored parity, but for the sixth time in the match she could not score from her serve, and the American was on the verge of victory with a score of 4-2. Finally, and with another break in his favour, North America finished things off with a massive 6-2.
