After their performance at Indian Wells, the tennis players returned to Europe. Here the fight for the remaining places in the prestigious WTA Finals tournament, which will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, will be decided. He chose the biggest stars of Moscow (WTA ranked 500). Elena Suitolina, who does not have good memories of the Russian capital, will perform in Tenerife. In 2016, she received threats and was persuaded to play in East only once.
This year, the Ukrainian woman will be the biggest star of the WTA 250 competition being held in the Canary Islands. Switolina is ranked No. 1 and will play in the first round against young Colombian Maria Camila Osorio Serrano. A quarter also includes the Spanish Rebeka Masarova and the Danish Clara Tauson. If an actress from our eastern neighbors makes it to the semi-finals, she could stand in her way, among others Italian Camila Giorgi and Swiss Viktorija Golubić.
Tamara Zidansek ranks higher in the lower half. The Slovenian seed came second and will face Romanian Jacqueline Christian at the start. The Chinese woman Shuai Zhang was also in her quarter. In the event of promotion to the semi-finals, the semi-finalist Roland Garros 2021 may meet with American Alison Riske or Spain’s Sarah Sorribes.
Polish women in Tenerife will play in doubles only, as Ursula Radwiska did not qualify for singles (more here). Alicia Rosolska and American Ingrid Neale will face German-Romanian duo Vivian Heisen and Andrea Mito. On the other hand, Katarzina Petr and Czech Renata Vorakova chose the Norwegian-Australian duo, Ulrike Ekere and Elaine Perez, as a starter. The victories of our women and their partners in the first round will see Piao Zeroni meet in the quarter-finals.
