Marta has qualified at Eastbourne!
She has an OK draw as well. She will play Sevastova on Monday in the first round. A win there and she will play either Mertens or CoCo! I want to see a Marta-CoCo match so bad! The first of many.
She's playing well all in all. We have to remember that she's not used to playing on grass and every match she plays she will gain more experience and get better.
Marta had a great win over Zhang on Sunday, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0.
I love that 6-0 set over a good grass-court player! She had 5 aces, served at 64 percent first serves. She was 7 of 10 on BP's while Zhang was only 4 of 13. Story of the match.
Let's go Marta! She can go far in the tournament and take some real momentum into Wimbledon. No matter what I love the fact that she's playing a lot and getting more and more experience.
Here's some pictures of Marta from her qualifying matches:
