Clijsters loses to the #258 player!

In a dramatic, well-played match, a young virtually unknown Spanish player Beatriz Garcia Vidagany eliminated Kim Clijsters from the Andalucia Experience 7-5, 4-6, 6-4. It was no fluke! The young Beatriz, ranked #258 in the world, outplayed Clijsters with a solid display of penetrating ground strokes from both wings.

Who is this lady? and what is her background? She is now into the quarter final, and will be a tough competitor for Sara Errani of Italy. You can be sure that we will see more of this youngster!

This is GarcĂ­a Vidagany’s first main draw on the Tour. She had played qualifying twice before but this was the first time she made it out of the pre-tournament, and she won her first Tour-level match in the first round against Kristina Barrois. The 21-year-old lefty, whose win over Barrois was her first over a Top 100 player, didn’t take long to carve out her first career Top 10 win.
