Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam tournament in which Magdalena Froche (WTA 145) has not yet played in the main category. On Wednesday, the Lodz player took a first win in the qualifying round, with a confident win over Bemra Özgen (WTA 242). Thus, he needs two more wins to pass the three-stage qualifiers.
Perhaps the first version fell prey to a Polish woman. Twelve minutes or so later, the score was 4:0 for Fręch, who scored two chips. Turczynka managed to make up only one break, but in the eighth match she lost serve for the third time and lost the set 2:6.
Our representative started the second match carefully. This time it was not possible to beat Özgen quickly and took care of the site for a long time. Fręch waited for her chances. In the sixth game, her opponent saved herself with a superb pass, and then equalized 3 times. The decision was made only in the twelfth match. Then the pole made two identical balls and sent a great forehand per second. After 90 minutes, she finally won 6:2, 7:5.
Frosch advanced to the second round of Wimbledon 2021 Qualifiers. Her task on Thursday will be even more difficult, because Arena Rodionoa (WTA 149) will stand in her way. The Australian reached the final of the ITF competition on the lawns in Nottingham last week, giving no chances (6-3, 6-0) to Italian Giulia Gatto Montecon (WTA 174) to launch the London Grand Slam qualifiers. In 2017, Fręch was better than Rodionowa after a three-set fight in the qualifying rounds for the WTA 250 competition on the hard courts in Tokyo.
