Last year, Iga Świątek started unsuccessfully at Foro Italico, but then won the Grand Slam Roland Garros Championship 2020. This time he was the ranked pole in 15th. In the first round, American Alison Riske, who was defeated on the grounds in Madrid, was withdrawn 6: 1, 6: 1 a few days earlier.
If the tennis player from Raszyn repeats the score from the Spanish capital, she will play against Czech Karolina Moshova or American Madison Keys in the second round. The promotion to the 1/8 Finals could mean a meeting with another American, Sophia Kenin, who was defeated by our representative in the 2020 Roland Garros Final.
In the second quadrant, which includes Świątek, there are many well-known names. In a possible quarter-final, among other things, Spaniard Garbin Muguruza or Ukrainian Elena Sweetulina. On the other hand, if a Polish woman qualifies for the semi-finals, her opponent might be a tennis player such as Australian Ashley Barty, Belarusian Arena Sabalenka or Czech Karolina Pliskova.
A very difficult task awaits Magda Lynette. The Poznan player has reached the main category as one of the last tennis players. Fate was not kind to the Polish woman, because Petra Kvitova, a Czech woman marked “11”, would stand in her way. Then he might wait for a qualifier, then Canadian Bianca Andreescu. In the Linate Quarter, Romanian Simona Halep, who triumphed in Rome last season, was the top.
The competition in the fourth quarter of the tournament looks promising. It includes the return of Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams to the tour after a hiatus of three months. Japanese women are not a big fan of the game of flour. Initially, she will play a match with Russian Daria Ksatkina or American Jessica Bigula. On the other hand, Williams will play in the second round with the tennis player from the preliminary or semi-final round Roland Garros 2020 of Argentine Nadia Podorowska.
The women’s championship will start on Monday. But on Saturday, a two-stage qualifying round began, in which the representatives of Poland did not participate.
