Three set win for Vivan Yang in AO juniors first round
A big win for Vivian Yang in the first round of the Australian Open junior singles beating 70th ranked Ava Krug in three sets.
Qualifier Yang won 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 in 1 hour 41 minutes on court 17 next to the railway tracks and closer to the MCG than to Rod Laver Arena.
However 17-year-old Yang wasn't fazed and was stoked to play in the main draw of the tournament, let alone win her first main draw match.
"I love that court. I Just loved how everyone came out to support me. the court doesn't matter it's all internal it doesn't matter if I'm on the big stage or court 50. It all comes down to myself," said Yang.
"It was good to play at the ASB Classic it got me around some of the top players. It's so good to experience everything here. It's worth coming back for."
As for the match itself Yang was pleased to overcome the loss of the second set and to be able to re-energise herself to take the match.
"I think i lost a bit of focus in the second set. I didn't really convert on my service game at 2-1. I have to give credit she played in the set.
"I think in the third set my momentum came back. I was a lot more energetic and i lifted a lot. Tactically I'm just trying to do the basics."
Yang will play either her doubles partner, Weronika Ewald from Poland or fifth seed Luciana Moyano (Argentina) in the second round.
