Bondárová – Martincová 6: 4, 7: 5, Martincová and Vondroušová end in the first round, Lehečka goes on

Lehečka and Laaksonen repeated the winning match from the qualification for the Masters tournament in Monte Carlo, where he then lost in the 1st round. Currently, the 93rd player in the world rankings had to qualify in Belgrade and, as the highest bidder, managed it without losing the set. In the match against the ranking neighbor Laaksonen (92nd), he used all three breakballs and, on the contrary, averted both threats of losing his own serve.

In the main ATP Tour competition, Lehečka scored his first victory since the February tournament in Rotterdam, where he passed from qualifying sensationally to the semifinals.

The next opponent of the 20-year-old Czech tennis player will be the second seed Andrej Rubljov from Russia, who had time off in the first round.

Former Austrian third player Dominic Thiem has made an unsuccessful return to the courts after a break of almost a year due to a wrist injury in Belgrade. The winner of last year’s US Open in the first round lost 3: 6, 6: 3, 4: 6 to Australian John Millman.

He’s waiting for Indian Wells

Twenty-seven-year-old Martincova has been waiting to win for over a month since winning the opening round of the tournament in Indian Wells. On Friday, during this year’s clay debut in the Prague qualification of the Billie Jean King Cup against Britain, she lost to the world twelve Emma Raducanuová.

Marie Bouzková and WTA Tour debutant Nikola Bartůňková were supposed to perform in singles today in Istanbul, but their matches were postponed due to bad weather.

Vondroušová was not enough for Jabúrová in Stuttgart

Czech tennis player Markéta Vondroušová was eliminated in the first round of the tournament in Stuttgart. The seventh seed Ons Jabur of Tunisia lost 6: 4, 2: 6 and 3: 6.

Vondroušová entered the match with the world top ten and won the first set in 37 minutes. Jabur then refined the game and from 2: 2 in the second set, gained seven games in a row.

In the decisive set, she took the lead 3: 0 and 22-year-old Vondroušová could no longer erase the loss. Although she managed to avert the first swordball, then the Jabur matches ended.

Former tournament winners Karolína Plíšková and Petra Kvitová will also present themselves in Stuttgart. The Czech stars will compete against each other in the first round on Wednesday, after which the winner will face Lyudmila Samsonova from Russia.
