Mihaela Buzărnescu and Irina Bara, eliminated in round 1 of Roland Garros
Bara (27 years old, 112 WTA), coming from the qualifiers, drove only once, in the beginning of the second set (1-0). What “pulled down” the Romanian was the very low percentage in both services, while Putintseva was much better in the direct winning balls, 26-14.
The bar, in its third appearance at Roland Garros, was chosen with a check for 60,000 euros and 50 WTA points.
The match between Mihaela Buzărnescu and Madison Brengle started somewhat balanced, but the Romanian made a lot of mistakes and lost the first set to 1.
He didn’t have much chances in the second act either, even if at the beginning with a break, because he continued to make mistakes, and the American won this one with 6-2.
Both Buzărnescu and Bara will receive 62,000 euros each and 30 WTA points. Buzărnescu was present on the main picture as a lucky loser.
