This atmosphere is very interesting” We want to move forward. It’s not over yet”, highlighted Paulista. “Today we were more nervous than on other days,” said the Sao Paulo native. We had to stay mentally stable on the big points.”

The match started out a little complicated for the Brazilians, who saw their opponents confirm the first zero game and then had two break points in the second, but both were not converted. After that, the balance remained until the seventh game, when Stephanie and Matos scored the first game, and they repeated the dose in the ninth and final game, thus closing out the first set.
