Cristina Bucsa bid farewell to Rome in the first round


The Spanish Cristina Bucsa bowed out of the WTA 1,000 in Rome in the first round after succumbing to the American Sofia Kenin 6-3, 6-7 (8) and 7-5, in an even match that lasted more than three hours.

The Spaniard, number 66 in the rankings, gave away four of his five serves in a first game in which he could only break the American, very solid at the rest, on two occasions.

He changed himself, however, search in the second stakes and enjoyed up to six ‘break’ points to take the set 6-4, but could not materialize and the outcome of this second round was extended to a tight ‘tie-break’ where he enjoyed up to four that set. score before leveling the match.

A tie on the scoreboard gave the Spaniard a boost after a dubious first set, but two ‘breaks’ were enough for the American to advance to the second round, where they will face the second seed, the Belarusian. Aryna Sabalenka.
