The Russian Daria Kasatkina advanced to the semis at St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy 2021! She rallied to beat her compatriot Veronika Kudermetova in a three-setter – 1/6, 6/1, 6/2. Daria played better on her serve and made fewer unforced errors (33 while 44 Kudermetova did 44).
“It is what women’s tennis is all about, Veronika started well while I was trying to find my rhythm. I came back into the match in the 2nd set. I think that the score doesn’t reflect the entire game. Anyway, it was a tough match” – Kasatkina said after the win. Speaking about the upcoming match against Svetlana Kuznetsova Daria said: «We were practicing together a lot but we have never played each other before. I hope the match will be an interesting one”.
