Ana through as Dulgheru retires May 2nd 2015

Ana moved into the second round of the Mutua Madrid Open after world No.69 Alexandra Dulgheru retired while trailing 4-0 in the third set. Nonetheless, the 27-year-old was close to a second straight early exit as the Romanian served for the match at 6-5 in the second set, but seventh seeded Ana eventually managed to turn the tide.

Ana wasn’t able to display her best level in the opening set. Both players faced break points in their opening service games – Ana had three chances to score a break – but neither of them succeeded to convert.
