The Spanish Sara sorribes, 24 years old and 58th in the world ranking, she has done it again to the American Bernarda Pera, 26 years old and 68th. If the Castellón had come back a set against this season in Abu dhabi (5-7, 6-3 and 6-4), in the WTA 1000 in Miami it has raised a much more opposite situation, which included two match balls.
Sorribes was imposed by 6-2, 2-6 and 7–5 in 2h.41 ‘, recovering a 1-5 in the third set, where she saved match point with 3-5 and 4-5 to end up chaining six games that put her in the second round.
Silvia Soler’s pupil will face the finalist of the last Australian Open, the American Jennifer brady, 25 years and 14th WTA, exempt from the inaugural round.
It will be their third duel, with equality so far. The Hispanic won on the hard court in Beijing 2018 by 7-6 (5), 2-6 and 6-1. The North American won on the grass of Nottingham 2019 by 6-4, 3-6 and 7-5.
Sorribes signed her best WTA classification this month (57th) by chaining the title of Guadalajara, his first WTA Tour, and the Monterrey ‘semis’.
