Kasatkina won 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 over Catherine McNally
in the second round of Cleveland on Tuesday.
Kasatkina unexpectedly had to rally from a set down against the No. 134-ranked American, but she was able to do so after nearly two hours of play. The No. 1 seed from Russia is coming off a Round 1 loss last week in Cincinnati. Kasatkina will face No. 6 seed Magda Linette
next, who she defeated earlier this season in San Jose in three sets.
