In the first set, Chiou is in complete control, hitting everything with power and accuracy.
The Neuqua junior has not been defeated in DVC play this season, so sometimes you need a little luck on your side. Ertas with a return that clips the net and drops over for the point.
Chiou has a response with this strong return kissing the back line. Absolutely nothing that Ertas can do with that kind of shot. Chiou takes the win 6-0, 6-1 as Neuqua sweeps in singles.
