  • 5 - Match points held over Alize Cornet in Cincinnati, before eventually losing the match in three sets
     
  • 6 - Matches lost after winning the opening set. Conversely, she produced a comeback herself four times after dropping set one

  • 222 – Aces, ending in fifth place of all WTA players
