Much better weather for the game in London on Tuesday than on Monday. The rain did not bother tennis players. In the first round of Wimbledon, Danki Kovinich (WTA 90) and Sunai Kartal (WTA 226) were scheduled to clash. However, the Montenegro international withdrew due to a back injury. Leslie Patinama Kerkhove (WTA 138), the “lucky loser” in the playoffs, was replaced by Leslie Patinama Kerkhove (WTA 138). The Dutch woman got the chance to play in the main tournament and used it. She won 6: 4, 3: 6, 6: 1 Kartal.

In the first set, Patinama Kerkhove scored 1-3, scoring five of his six consecutive matches. In the second, the Dutch tied 2:2 with 0:2. Kartal made a breakthrough in 4:2 and this time he did not give up the advantage. The third party definitely belongs to Pattinama Kerkhove. She lost the only match when she was leading 5:0.

In the 93-minute match, Kartal used four of his six break points. Patinama Kerkhove traded six out of eight breakout opportunities. The Dutch woman sent 26 final strokes with 41 easy fouls. The British won six balls and won by 24 fouls.

Patinama Kerkhove made her fourth Grand Slam performance and advanced to the second round for the second time. He tied her score from Wimbledon last year. The 30-year-old Dutch woman wasn’t on the top 100 singles chart. On June 6 this year, she was ranked 135th in her career.
