Timea loses to Anna Karolina Schmiedlova

Timea (WTA 12) bowed 1-6 6-1 6-3 in the first round of the WTA tournament in Sydney facing the Slovak Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (WTA 26).

For coach Dimitri Zavialoff, however, there are many positive lessons to be gained from this match, "Timea held tight for the first half of the match then it became more complicated but she clunged. We feel that she still lacks some benchmarks but after a good week of training, she should be ready for the Australian Open."
