Marion Viertler to play the second turn of qualifying
Seventh seed Laura Mair (WTA 697) from Wolkenstein defeated Inez Maria Kotlikova from the Czech Republic 6:4 6:1. The first set was quite even, but then Laura managed to break at 4:4 and then win the set straight away. She stepped up a gear in the second set and brought her opponent to her knees with hard groundstrokes, precise serves and clever stop balls. She has therefore qualified for the main draw and will play her first round match on Tuesday.read more
