Real Sociedad had a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Getafe to end a run of poor results at home since the return of football in June and to momentarily go top of the table, although that lead didn't last for long.
The Czech player fired 23 winners in the match in which she converted four of her nine break points. Despite missing a chance to serve for the win in the eighth game of the second set at 5-2, she clinched it when an opportunity appeared again in the tenth to wrap up the victory with a love game.

He is also doubtful for Barca's next games, which are away to Getafe on October 17, their Champions League debut at home to Ferencvaros on October 20, and the first 'Clasico' of the season at home against Real Madrid five days later.
He has also maintained Wolverhampton forward, Adama Traore in his squad, despite the striker, who was born close to Barcelona, also being called up by his parents' homeland, Mali.
Things got worse for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team as Anthony Martial was sent off for lashing out at Erik Lamela, and Harry Kane and Son made it 4-1 before halftime.
"We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favorably for laurels at the global level and I believe the new technical crew, led by Waldrum, can take us to that level," Pinnick said.
American Sara Hall, who sprinted to surpass world champion Ruth Chepngetich in the last meters, finished second in 2:22:01. Chepngetich from Kenya completed the race four seconds later.
"We mainly worked on guarding their three-pointers, also doing well on 3-pointers and rebounds on our own," Dongguan coach Lin Yaosen commented.
Saturday ended with Newcastle United winning 3-1 at home to Burnley thanks to an excellent display from winger Allan Saint-Maximin. The Frenchman scored his side's first goal and then set up Callum Wilson for Newcastle's second of the game just four minutes after Ashley Westwood's 61st minute equalizer for the visitors.
"They played great and showed their value on the court, which led to our victory," Li commented.
