Cristina Bucsa was unable to defeat the superior Camila Giorgi in straight sets (6-1, 6-2) and bowed out in the second round of the WTA 1000 in Guadalajara. The Italian will be a rival to Sakkari or Hunter for a place in the quarterfinals of the Mexican tournament.
WTA Guadalajara draw
New presentation for the only Spanish representative of this Guadalajara tournament, Cristina Bucsa, after her incredible Double Rosco against Kristina Mladenovic in her debut. In this case she had to play against a player with a better level like the Italian Camila Giorgi who at this point arrived via fast track after a good win against the pre-classified Mayar Sherif.
Giorgi, dominant at all times
The game started with the Italian player serving and quickly with a break in favor of Cristina, who then started the game optimally and was already in the lead without much effort. In any case, Giorgi, who gradually settled into the pitch in the intense heat of Guadalajara, would immediately make up for the break. After saving two more break points, the Italian once again stuck to her opponent’s serve, then confirmed it with her own serve, creating a 4-1 difference in the score. She has grown a lot in her feelings and makes the difference compared to the Spanish second servers. Giorgi would win that first set with a solid 6-1.
Camila also seemed to come out better in the second set, with a different level of confidence, taking the lead again on the first break. Bucsa didn’t want to give up so easily and although he managed to get back level for the time being, his renewed inability to hold serve gave him the lead. It was very frustrating for Cristina to be faced with such negativity without being completely inferior, but that was just how things went. Finally, the Italian sealed her victory with a decisive 6:2.
