Dasha lost 2-6 5-7 to the former world No. 1 and the 10th seed Caroline Wozniacki from Denmark in the first round of Premier 5 tournament in Dubai.
The match was equal till 2-2 in the first set and then Wozniacki managed to win four games in a row, having made three breaks on Dasha’s serve. The second set was tougher but eventually Dasha did not manage to take her serve in the twelfth game and Wozniacki secured the victory and the place in the second round. It is necessary to admit that Wozniacki was the runner-up of Premier tournament in Doha which took place last week.
Dasha still has chances to win Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships as she competes in doubles, pairing with the Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu. Both have already reached the second round after the victory over the Ukrainian pair Elina Svitolina / Kateryna Bondarenko.
