Because of her studies at an American university, Anna Hertl cannot regularly participate in professional tournaments. This week, she competed in her first ITF-level event since October 2021 and came close to winning her first tournament. In the Slovenian town of Katez op Savi, she won four matches and only in the final was stopped by Vivian Wolf.

The road to Sunday’s final wasn’t easy. Already in the first round, Hertel was checked by the Slovakian Katarina Kuzmova. Then there were an amazing three hundred fights in the semi-finals with Frenchman Laia Petrich. The title match with Wolff lasted nearly three hours. In the third set the Warsaw player almost came back with a score of 1: 5. She had a break point in the 10th game, but the American defended herself and finished the match. Wolf finally won 6:2, 6:7 (0), 6:4.

Veronica Valkoska participated in a major ITF event in Brasov, Romania. And the Polish was eliminated in the first round of singles after losing to Swiss Joan Zuger 6: 0, 1: 6, 0: 6. Our tennis player performed better in doubles. Together with Veronika Erjavec she reached the final. In it, the Czech Jesika Maleckova and the Bulgarian Isabella Szinikowa turned out to be better.

Orszola Radwijska had an unsuccessful start to the season on European grass. Although the Krakow player passed the ITF qualifier in Surbiton, she scored only two first-round matches against Australian Arina Rodionoa. The Polish then decided to start qualifying for the WTA 250 Championships in Nottingham, but on Saturday was knocked out in the first stage (more here).

Martina Kupka did not succeed in eliminating a meal in Brescia, Italy. In the doubles, the Polish and the Dutch Isabelle Haverlag finished their performance in the quarter-finals. Daria Kucher, who spent another year studying in the United States, decided to start at Rancho Santa Fe in America. However, our tennis player did not manage to win the match neither in singles nor in doubles.

The gentlemen did not have noticeable results this week. Mikowaj Blinkevich, Bartomij Andrzeczak and Mateusz Kochakovsky did not qualify for the Finnish Vasa Championship. In turn, in the Spanish city of La Nucia, Adam Kazmaric made his professional debut without success, as he was eliminated in the first round of qualifying and the first stage of the doubles championship.
