Tennis player Kateřina Siniaková did not repeat the sensation from the first round at the clay tournament in Rome, when she defeated the former world number one Angelique Kerberová from Germany. This time she lost to Russian Kasatkin smoothly after sets 2: 6, 3: 6.
Twenty-four-year-old Siniak sensationally won over Kerberos and claimed her first WTA Tour victory since the February tournament in Dubai. However, the second round was already final for the 61st player in the world rankings, when Daria Kasatkin was beyond Russia’s strength.
Siniaková did not get into the match, she lost her service twice and lost 0: 5. Then she managed to avert the canary, but lost the set with a ratio of 2: 6.
The second set was more exciting, as the Czech player managed to break through the opponent’s service twice. But it was not valid for her, because she lost the service herself three times. She lost the second set in a 3: 6 ratio, which meant her tournament end.
