It was a great start at Wimbledon by Magdalena Froch (WTA 92). The Polish tennis player fought brilliantly while reaching the quarter-finals of this tournament four years ago and finally defeated Camila Giorgi 7:6 (4), 6:1. Thanks to this, she enjoyed her second Grand Slam victory (her first win of the 2018 season in Paris).
Interestingly, at the inauguration, Fręch defeated the finalist of the Katowice Open three times (2014-2016). On Thursday, her opponent will be a tennis player who is also known for her performance in our country. Anna Karolina Schmidlova (WTA 84) will stand in the way of the Lodz team, which won in 2015 the Spodek Arena in Katowice, defeating Giorgi in the match for the title.
The 27-year-old from Kosice, like Fręch, enjoyed his first Wimbledon win on Tuesday. Previously, she was eliminated six times in the first round. But this time, she beat Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson 7:5, 0:6, 6:3 and advanced to the second stage as the sun set.
Fręch played with Schmiedlova only once. In 2017, Słowaczka won with pole 3:6, 6:2, 6:4 in the first round of the ITF competition with a prize pool of $25,000 on clay courts in the Hungarian town of Donaksici. Five years later, the Wodge player will be able to meet that defeat for the first time in her career to qualify for the third round of a Grand Slam tournament.
