In the first qualifying round, Paula Cania-Chodo finished the singles performance. The tennis player from Sosnowiec mainly excels in doubles, playing with Tara Moore in Morocco. The Polish-British duo launched successfully on Monday.

Paula Kanya Chodo


Only one Polish woman, Paula Kania Chowdoy, joined the tournament in Morocco. In qualifying for the singles tournament, she was eliminated in the first round. It turned out that the Italian Christiana Ferrando was better than her (6: 1, 6: 0).

However, this was not a huge surprise, as the 29-year-old from Sosnowiec is primarily focused on doubles. The doubles competitions began on Monday with Britain’s Tara Moore. Their French opponents are Kristina Mladenovic and Clara Borrell.

It was the tennis players, who are much higher in the WTA rating (Mladenovic – 110, Borrell – 95), who started the game better, scoring a break from the start. However, the first two matches the French won were the last time in this group. Kania-Choduń and Moore quickly cut out their rivals and started playing like notes. The Polish-British duo finally won the first set 6:2 and became the favorites of the entire match.

The second batch began almost symmetrically, the French quickly won the breakthrough, but abandoned it after a while. In the middle of the group, Mladenovic and Borrell again took the lead in serving their rivals, but the Pole and the Briton immediately led to a draw. Kania-Choduń and Moore had a chance to finish this encounter during their opponent’s service match and they didn’t miss their chance.
