Viktorija Golubic is eliminated in the 3rd round.
In the first two rounds Viktorija Golubic (28, WTA 46) succeeds in each coup in Indian Wells. First she eliminated Olympic finalist Marketa Vondrousova (WTA 37), then with Maria Sakkari the world number 9.
Against the Russian world number 151 Anna Kalinskaya (22), the Zurich girl is now the favorite in the third round. And ruled out with 6: 1, 1: 6, 3: 6 without a singing or sounding.
The game starts well for the 28-year-old. After the break to 0: 1, she wins six games in a row and bag the first set in 33 minutes.
In the 2nd sentence then the reverse picture. Again, Golubic makes up for an early break deficit, but then collapses completely. And now I can’t win more than one game myself.
The Swiss woman is no longer recovering from this. In the decisive set, she conceded three breaks in a row, which sealed her defeat. After almost two hours, Kalinskaya used her first match ball. (bir)
