Martincová won the promotion to the second round in Bogota, and Kvitová continues in Charleston

Tennis player Tereza Martincová won the promotion to the second round at the clay tournament in Bogota. Petra Kvitová also did well at the tournament in Charleston, when she defeated the Australian qualifier Storm Sanders 7: 6, 6: 2 in the second round match.

Martincová, who moved into the top 100 for the first time in her career in the WTA rankings on Monday and is ranked number seven in Colombia, defeated Switzerland’s Leonia Küng after a more than two-hour duel 4: 6, 6: 4, 6: 4.

The opening set, in which both players could rely on the service, was decided by the only breakball that Küng used. Gradually, however, the match turned into a duel for every game. Martincová was already leading 4: 1, but then she completely dropped out of the game and in the thickening drizzle allowed her opponent to equalize. In the ninth gamma, she averted three breakballs and finally won the set when the Swiss served.

In the third set, the Czech national team lost 1: 3, but managed the end of the match better. From 2: 4, she played four gamma in a row and won the promotion. Her next opponent will be nineteen-year-old domestic hope Maria Camila Osori Serranová, who ranks 180th in the world rankings.

Triumph on green clay

Kvitová advanced to the round of 16 at the tournament in Charleston. The third seeded player, who had a free draw in South Carolina at the start, defeated Australian qualifier Storm Sanders in a second round match on non-traditional green clay. After a balanced first set, in which both players kept the serve, Kvitová won in an hour and a half 7: 6, 6: 2.

“It was the first match on clay and I didn’t have much time to prepare. The beginnings on clay are always challenging mentally and physically for me, but I’m glad I found a way to win the first set,” said Kvitová, 31, on the court.

She won the opening set in a shortened game 7: 4 and in the second she secured the progress with a better managed ending. From 2: 2, he gained four gamma in a row. “Gradually I got used to her service, left-handed, at least I know how annoying it was. I started to return better and didn’t make so much mistakes. And when I broke it, I started playing without worries,” said the 11th player in the world rankings only for the second time in his career.
