August 7, 2017

Having spent almost two hours on court, Dasha finally managed to win her opening match in Toronto. Dasha won both tie-breaks, securing her victory over the Italian Roberta Vinci. She was especially on fire in the second set when she managed to offset the 5-2 lead of the Italian and secured two set-balls upon her opponent’s serve. Dasha served two aces, avoided double faults and won three break points during the entire match. 

Her next opponent in the second round of Premier 5 tournament in Toronto is the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina – No. 5 in the WTA ranking. It will be the second match between the players – last year they met in the first round of New Haven where Svitolina managed to win in three sets.
