“When the game resumed after the intense heat, my opponent asked for a warm-up. It was there that I informed the chair umpire that I preferred to skip it, considering my physical conditions, and recommended my opponent to do it with his coach. However, Ekaterina declined this proposal. I tried to conserve as much energy as possible to compete 100% in the third set “, ended the former world number 9, twice champion at the WTA level, who finally left in the last quarter, when she fell 7-6 (3), 3-6 and 0-1, before the Georgian Gorgodze, in a corresponding match to an ITF tournament.
