6:2. Iga plays great and leads after 36 minutes! Outbreak at the end of the eighth inning. Rywalka scored only a point again.
5:2. The Pole is getting closer and closer to taking the lead in the groups, and she is undoubtedly dominating the field. This time the Russians were allowed to get only one point.
4:2. Kasatkina defends his order, even though Swiatek was about to strike her balance. In the end, I played a network. Almost half an hour of playing is behind us.
4:1. Iga retains an advantage of three times. She works great on her feet and impresses with a forehand, and it’s only corrected in this game – in this game she made another double mistake. He wins in the end to 30.
3:1. Raszynianka was on her way to the second break, leading by 40:15, but Kasatkina got out of trouble and went into the first match. In the end, Pole fired from a forehand.
3:0. Iga started the game as planned, with a successful website, but it didn’t break the Russian woman. Three other acts fell victim to her. She had two chances to break back, but she couldn’t win anything anymore. Iga defended herself in an excellent way, incl. Big forehand kick straight onto the line. In the end, behaved excellently on the network.
2: 0. The second gem and the first Iga hack! The opponent started with a double fault, the Polish scored two more points and got three break points. I used the third.
1: 0. The Polish woman started with a mistake, but quickly got back on track. She made a great backhand, surprised to be short and won the opening match by 15.
Grams! Serve polka!
If he defeats Iga Kasatkina today, he will become the first tennis player since 2014 to win five times with the same opponent in one season. Eight years ago, this play was a hit for Petra Kvitova, who turned out to be five times better than Lucy Safarova.
It’s a pity that in Fort Worth there are more free seats in the stands than full seats.
Polish women and Russian women are already on the field!
The Kudiermietowa-Mertens duo won the tiebreak with a score of 10:6. So, we are waiting for Shwetek and Kasatkina to appear in court.
The first group won by 6:3 for Ukraine and Latvia. In the second, the Russian and the Belgian were better – 6: 1. The decisive match began a few minutes ago.
Today’s first match in the tournament is a doubles match between Weronika Kudiermietowa / Elise Mertens – Ludmyła Kiczenok / Jelena Ostapienko. The ladies started playing at the age of 21.
In the group stage, the world ranking leaders’ competitors will be American Cory “Coco” Gauff and France’s Caroline Garcia.
It is worth emphasizing that a possible defeat will not eliminate the chances of Polish women winning the entire tournament. The competition is held in the first stage in two groups. In them, players fight in the system of “everyone with all”. The best two from each group will advance to the semi-finals.
He’s faced Poland’s Kasatkina, who is eighth in Texas, five times before. True, the Russian gave up once last year, but in this she easily beat her four times, including at Roland Garros. She lost a total of 14 matches.
