Latvia’s leading tennis player Alona Ostapenko on Saturday paired with Ukrainian Ludmila Kičenok reached the second round of the Indian Wells “WTA 1000” series doubles tournament. In the first round, the Latvian / Ukrainian duo beat the international duo Shelby Rogers (USA) / Ajla Tomljanoviča (Australia) – 6-3, 6-3.

In the first set, Kichenok and Ostapenko used the first break ball in the second and sixth games, but lost the third game. Another break ball for the US / Australian duo was in the sixth game, but remained unused. In the second set, Kickenoka and Ostapenko had a break ball in the first game, but as in the fifth game, it remained unused. In the sixth game, the opponents already had such an opportunity, but the point of serving was lost in the seventh and ninth games, which meant Ostapenko and Kitchenoka entering the second round. In almost all statistics, the winners were better, winning 60 of 107 games in the match.

In the second round, Ostapenko and Kichenok will meet with one of Ostapenko’s former doubles partners Gabriel Dabrovsky from Canada and American Hailey Carter. In her first play in Indian Wells, she defeated the international duo Keithlin Christian (USA) / Erina Rautliff (New Zealand) 6-4, 6-4.

It has already been reported that in the single-player tournament, Ostapenko defeated Taiwanese Suvei Xie in the second round with a result of 6-3, 6-0 and will meet with Yulia Putinceva (WTA 43) representing Kazakhstan in the third round. Latvia’s second racket, Anastasia Sevastova (WTA 65), in the second round of the tournament on Saturday gave way to Tunisian Onsa Žabera (WTA 14), who was sown with the number 12 in the tournament – 2-6, 7-6 (7: 5), 3-6 . The tournament in Indian Wells takes place on a hard surface.
