Tuesday, 24 January 2023

A difficult loss for Vivian Yang in the second round of the Australian Open Junior Girls singles.

She was defeated 6-1, 6-0 by doubles partner Weronika Ewald of Poland in 49 minutes on court 16 with a lengthy break for rain at the completion of the first set. 

Despite the score Yang was in the first few games and had three break point opportunities, but wasn't able to convert any of them. 

She was unable to get into the rallies and struggled with the flat hitting of Ewald who has an ITF junior ranking of 53.

In the second set Ewald stepped up her game while Yang appeared unable to kickstart hers as she watch the 16-year-old Pole race away with the match.

After coming through qualifying Yang finished the tournament with three singles wins (including two in qualies), one three set doubles loss and one singles loss in what was her first junior Grand Slam.
