Kateryna Kozlova brushes past Greta Arn 6-2 6-1 in the 1st round in Nanchang on Monday after playing a remarkable match to come up against Dalila Jakupovic in the 2nd round.

Score, report, and key facts

1st set.

Kozlova had a strong start of this set after breaking Arn in the 1st game (1-0). Notwithstanding, the set was not over yet and there was more work to do for Kateryna to win the set because Arn managed to break back in the 6th (2-4) game. Kozlova maintained her focus to break Arn in the 7th (5-2) game before conquering the set (6-2).

2nd set.

Kateryna won the set after she broke Greta 3 times in the 3rd (2-1), in the 5th (4-1) and in the 7th (6-1) game. That break defined the set and it was sufficient for Kateryna to conquer the set since she didn’t concede her serve during the rest of the set.

Greta was outplayed in the last 6 games of the set (from 0-1 to 6-1).
