Elena Baltacha, the British no.1, beat Julia Goerges, the German number three seed 2-6, 7-5, 7-6 (2) in her second round match at the Texas Tennis Open. The world nr.61 Baltacha managed to come back from a set down in a boiling hot weather (temperatures climbing above 40C) and this match should give her enough confidence before the US Open start next week.
She will now play the winner of the match Aravane Rezai and Sorana Cirstea.
