Kerber defeated Belarusian Alexandra Sasnowiec 6:2, 3:6, 6:4 in the second round on Wednesday. The match lasted about two hours.

“I feel good, playing with pleasure,” admitted the 34-year-old German international, who entered the Strasbourg search for a match against the French Open for the Grand Slam, and received a “wild card” from the organisers.

Before arriving in Strasbourg, she was topping the rankings of tennis players, and now the 22nd racket in the world has lost six matches in a row, and since the beginning of the year he can boast only two victories.

The 30-year-old Lynette (56 WTA), who will play Kerber for the first time, advanced to the quarter-finals with a 6-1 6-1 victory over Britain’s Heather Watson. Earlier, a player from Poznan eliminated Russian Warwara Gracewą 6:3, 6:0.

The Polish-German duel should begin around Thursday. 16.


Volleyball player, editor, and finally president. Which of the following occupational roles indicates the “worst job ever”? Who wore the mask? And what happened when he finally deserted her? Krzysztof Ignaczak – or simply Igła – comes to Łukasz Kadziewicz with a balance of profits and losses, successes and failures. He evaluates himself and others – sometimes harshly. Certainly frankly painful. “I was a regular player,” he admits, with enough distance. He talks about volleyball without the addition of ice, sometimes with a touch of bitterness, and explains what the Polish league has to do… Italian pasta.
