So far, Katarzyna Piter and Katarzyna Kawa have played the duo together at the ITF World Tennis Tour events. In 2019, they won the title at American Jackson’s Meal. On Tuesday, the Polish women joined the competition in Birmingham (WTA 250), where they played their first joint match on European turf.
Harriet Dart and Sarah Beth Gray stood in the way of Peter and Cowie. The host tennis players received an invitation card from the organizers. After 72 minutes, the British deservedly won the match 6: 2, 7: 5.
In the first group our representatives didn’t have much to say. Dart and Gray are feeling better on the grass, so they took the lead in games three and seven. After switching sides, they easily used the first view setbola.

Feelings were in the second installment. Peter and Kawa managed to get the breakout advantage twice, but the competitors responded quickly. With a position of 4, the Briton scored a break, but failed to finish the match with Gray’s pass. The Polish women adjusted, but did not follow the blow. The opponents took advantage of it and tried to get another break. After switching sides, the dart hand did not tremble. In the first match ball, she sent a great serve and finished the match.
Dart and Gray qualified for the quarter-finals of the WTA 250 double in Birmingham. Czech Lucy Hradica and Sania Mirza of India will be the third seed. For Peter and Kawa, the competition on turf at Edgbaston Priory Club is over.
