"I am very happy that I won", says Kiki Bertens immediately after her match against Eurosport . "It wasn't a very good game. I grabbed a lot of points because she made a lot of mistakes. At a 3-0 score, I played a very bad game, but then I quickly recovered. Fortunately, physically it also went well. In the preparation for this competition I did everything to keep fit and luckily I had no problems with it. "

Sharapova already ready in Melbourne
Maria Sharapova fails to reach the second round in Melbourne.

The current number 145 of the world won a WTA tournament (Tianjin) for the last time in 2017, partly because she was suspended for 15 months for the use of the prohibited substance meldonium.
