A day with Timea Bacsinszky

June 1, 2017

It was Bacsinszky’s fourth WTA title, but her first on clay after the three previous crowns were won on hard-courts.Despite the scoreline in the final, it was a hugely encouraging week for Erakovic, who came through qualifiers to make the main draw.The 28-year-old has been struggling again with injury and poor results, which had seen her fall to 186th in the world rankings.She made the final with a two and a half hour three-set win the previous day over Dutch player Kiki Bertens that may have left her short of her best for the final, which was her eighth match in as many days.Her results in Rabat are likely to springboard her up almost 60 places, ahead of next month’s French Open in Paris.
