Michaella Krajicek wins her WTA comeback match. Def. Soler-Espinosa 75/64 at the Topshelf Open
Good match from Misa! Soler-Espinosa isn’t the best grass player, but Misa showed that she’s still able to compete with top100 players.
She wins 30 pts. for the WTA ranking which means she will rise alot.
Next match will be alot tougher. She will play Flipkens or Schiavone
