It took almost two hours to define the winner of the second round match at Rogers Cup in Toronto and eventually Dasha lost this battle to the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina 6-7(4) 4-6.
Each player made four breaks in the first set and the winner was decided at the tie-break which was taken by Svitolina. To Dasha’s credit, she managed to save the set at Svitolina’s serve twice. At the beginning of the second set Dasha grasped the 4-0 lead but Svitolina managed to rise and won six games in a row. Thus, the Ukrainian won the second consecutive match against Dasha.
Next week Dasha will play at another Premier 5 tournament in Cincinnati.
