Sorry to see American Angela Haynes have to make her exit in the third round, she’s put in the work on this one. Angela prevailed in the qualifying rounds to reach the main draw and has been playing well.
I was definitely concerned when I saw that she was scheduled to play Italian Flavia Pennetta. Pennetta can be a force to be reckoned with on any given day. Although Angela was able to take the first set off of Pennetta, she wasn’t able to mount enough game to hold on through the next two sets. Pennetta took the win 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.
Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Angela in upcoming tour tournaments.
