Currently ranked 159 in the WTA rankings, Katarzina Kawa flew to Macon straight from Rancho Santa Fe, California, where she won the doubles title with Teresa Mihalikova. In Georgia, Poland and Slovakia played together again, but this time in the first round they were defeated in Tuesday’s match by Britain’s Emily Appleton and Mexico’s Fernanda Contreras Gomez 6: 2, 6: 2.
On Wednesday, Kawa joined the fight in singles. Standing in her way was Robin Anderson (WTA 203), who had previously passed the qualifying round. In the first group, both women had serious problems with their own service. They played 12 matches, nine of which were won by the winners. The American turned out to be the best single break and also won the opening match 7:5.
The second edition had a different course than the previous one. This time the tennis players tried to monitor the site. When Anderson came out at 4:2, our representative managed to tie at 4. Then there was another attack from the host player. I scored a break in the ninth inning, and after switching the team, I used the third game ball. Two hours later, the American finally won 7:5, 6:4 and advanced to the 1/8 finals.
Thus Kawa ended the conflict in Macon with the first round of singles and doubles. She will not repeat the success of last year, when she triumphed in doubles with Magdalena Froch. Next week, the Polish tennis player will compete in the ITF tournament in Tyler, Texas, and then go to Midland, where the WTA Challenger (WTA 125) will take place.
