Andrea focus on only doubles in Charleston

Unfortunately Andrea Hlavackova did not manage first round in Family Circle Cup in Charleston. In match against Monica Puig from Puerto Rico Andrea started promisingly but finally she lost 4:6, 0:6.

From the first time it seemed that Andrea found her internal peace on clay in Charleston, she led 3:0 quickly. But then by the end of the game she won only one game. It all ended in an hour. “The introduction was promising, but then my opponent started to win and in a balanced endgame she managed it better. Unfortunately in the second set I have a mild back pain. Puig played very well and I just couldn´t get into my rhythm,” Andrea added sadly.

So she can concentrate on doubles, in which she will play with Liezel Huber against Daniela Hantuchova and Anabel Medina Garrigues on Wednesday. “On Tuesday I´ll mostly try to cure my back by physiotherapy. The draw is hard, but in Paris we were successful, so we´ll try to continue with it,” Andrea said.
