The first to qualify for the 1/8 finals of the 2021 National Bank Open were Magda Linette and Bernard Pera. The meeting of the Polish-American couple with Oksana Kalashnikov and the duet of Heather Watson ended in a severe defeat for the Georgian and British women, who never managed to keep the service. Our actress and partner allowed their rivals to go on a tennis “bike”, and they won 6-0, 6-0.
On Wednesday, Lynette and Bera will meet again. This time around, Chhoko Aoyama and Ina Shibahara, this year’s Miami Open runner-up and Wimbledon runners-up, will stand in their way. flip-flops are ranked number two.
Alicia Rosolska and Vivien Heisen also won the first match of the tournament, which was held in Montreal. The Polish-German duo of Eren Rotliff and Rosalie van der Hoek faced off. The New Zealander and the Dutch woman had their chances in each set (in the first set they were leading with the breakout advantage), but eventually lost after tied 6:7 (5), 6:7 (6).
Rosolska and Heisen advance to the 1/8 finals and will wait for their next opponents. They will rank with Croatia’s Darija Jurac and Slovenian Andrea Klebak (the WTA 500 champion in San Jose, which ended on Sunday) or Spain’s Paula Padusa and Sara Sorribes.
