2019 Rabat highlights: Mertens bests Flipkens

Aliaksandra Sasnovich needed just an hour and 10 minutes to sail through to the second round after defeating Richel Hogenkamp in straight sets, 7-6 6-0. Her seven-match winning run from the qualifyings, which includes wins over #11 Mladenovic, #16 Sevastova, #34 Kontaveit and #38 Cornet, was ended by Svitolina. The Belarusian has not won a lot of clay matches in the last two years. In 2016, she went 4/9 while playing mostly ITFs. The entirety of the match was played indoors on Wednesday. Sasnovich started the year with her second WTA final (first Premier one) at Brisbane. In 2017, she played five tour-level clay tournaments, losing the opening round matches in three of them.

And that is where Kristen Flipkens and Johanna Larsson have the huge advantage. From a Star Power point of view, Kuzmova and Sasnovich are the favorite. Both are currently free today from Singles duties, which means plenty of time to rehearse and come up with a much more effective game plan. In fact, the Doubles is where Tennis becomes a team sport. Thanks.... So zero preparation for the Doubles equals 2-0. So mere Star power won't count if they cannot coordinate themselves and understand each other's movement. But, this is the Doubles, and not the Singles. Contrast, there has been a delay to Sasnovich's Singles game Today against Ons Jabeur.
