The end of August is a special time for Magda Lynette. Two years ago, Pozna residents enjoyed their first Tour Championship. Then our representative won in the New York Bronx. The event has already disappeared from the WTA calendar, but the points for that success remain. Women’s tennis authorities have decided that this season’s final tournaments leading up to the 2021 US Open will be held in Cleveland and Chicago.

Lynette decided to play in the ground tennis tournament in Cleveland, where she was ranked sixth. In the first round, the pole drew herself to Zhang Shuai very uncomfortable. Chinese women have a 5-0 balance with our representative in professional courts. He currently plays for Cincinnati, where he will fight for the title in doubles with Australian Samantha Stosur on Saturday.

Lynette was in the first quarter. If she wins the opening match, Australian Storm Sanders or one of the qualifiers will stand in her way. However, in the quarter-finals he could wait, among other things, top-ranked Daria Kasatkina, who was awarded a university card by the organizers. The Russian was better than the Pole in the quarter-finals of the WTA 500 Championship that was held a few weeks ago in San Jose.

Russia’s Ekaterina Alexandrowa (No. 3) and Argentina’s Nadia Podroska (No. 5) were also seeded in the top half. However, in the lower half there are, among others Estonian Annette Kontaveit (No. 2), British Joanna Konta (No. 4), Spanish Sarah Soribes (No. 7) and American Shelby Rogers (No. 8). The wild card, apart from Kasatkina, was awarded to American Maria Mathias and Iga Świątek’s doubles partner, Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

The competition will take place at the WTA 250 Main Event in Cleveland from August 22-28. On Saturday, the qualifying matches will start in two phases, in which Poland’s representatives will not attend. Piao Zeroni has been submitted to qualify for the 2021 US Open Grand Slam, which begins in New York on Tuesday.
