Iga Wistek’s path to defending the title at the Roland Cross Grand Slam is becoming more and more interesting. Another favorite who could threaten Christmas or Magda Linette, who had previously advanced to the third round, has been ruled out of the tournament.
This is how Svitolina came out! Kryzhikova broke it with 31 points in a winning game
It is about Elena Svitolina, who lost the match against Czech Barbara Kryzhikova 3: 6, 2: 6. The Ukrainian is ranked sixth in the world, and he lost to his 33rd-ranked rival. In the first set, nothing went according to Svitolina’s plan from the first game – he lost on his own pass. Then he made his progress, but could not go through Kryzhikova. He again took advantage of a winning game in the opponent’s service, next he defended four break points and after 31 points he was able to take the lead with a score of 5: 3.
With this gem, he could have broken Svitolina, who lost the first set 3: 6 after another weak game with his own management, and then, despite the broken gap at the start of the next game, he did not stop the rushing Czech woman. Kryzhikova won the second set 6-2 and the entire game 2-0.
Ąwiątek and Linette lost another strong rival. He can play with Polish girls in the quarterfinals or semifinals
In the fourth round, Kryzhikova will face American Sloane Stephens (59th in the WTA rankings), who defeated her compatriot Carolina Muchova 6: 3, 7: 5. In the following rounds, a Czech woman may fight with Polish tennis players Magda Linnett or Equique Tech if they win the next match. This also means that in the event of a promotion, Polish women will avoid meeting Elena Svitolina in the quarterfinals (in the case of Lynette) or in the semifinals (in the case of ąwiątek).
The start of the third round of the Roland Cros fight between Iga Wistech and Annette Kondaveet is scheduled for Saturday, June 5 at Philippe Chatterjee Court. The tennis players will face each other at 4:00 p.m. Magda Lynette’s meeting with Once Jabir in Court 14 will also take place on Saturday, June 5th. The fight is scheduled for the third row from 11:00 p.m. Both matches will be broadcast on Eurosport channels. Thanks for the coverage in Sport.pl and SPORT.PL LIVE usage as well.
