Adventure ends Lucrezia Stefanini at the Australian Open. The 24-year-old from Carmignano, No. 141 in the rankings, advanced from the qualifiers, after notching her first win in a main-draw (in her debut) by defeating Germany’s Maria, No. 71, WTA, before the final. At Wimbledon last year, she sold 63 61, in 1 hour 22 minutes, to the Russians Varvara GrachevaNo. 98 WTA, which surprisingly had only two matches left for compatriot Kasatkina, ranked 8th in the ranking and ranking.
Thanks to the four wins between qualification and main draw, Lucrezia has a “best rating” anyway: she’s practically No. 114 in the WTA, 26 places higher than the previous record – No. 140 – which was signed last October 10.
