“It was really tough conditions, it’s very humid,” Rodionova told the WTA website.”I was preparing myself for it. I think today it was a little bit hard for both of us. I’m glad to manage to get through.”Serbia’s Jelena Jankovic, 32, a former world number one, made it a second Chinese loser on the day as she swatted aside Kang Jiaqi 6-2, 7-5
