Interesting prospect, Genie Bouchard and Monica Puig get to the second round in Osaka in style.
Genie had quite an easy contest against world no.55 Varvara Lepchenko. The match lasted only 69 minutes and the very interesting part is that Genie was really playing with the confidence of a veteran as she conceded 3 games to Varvara just by playing a very solid tennis. Finally Bouchard scored 63 points vs. Varvara’s 40. Match Stats
Monica will play world no. 87 Kurumi Nara in the second round.
