This Sunday Nadia Podoroska was back to her best level. For the second round of the Palermo WTA qualy, now Argentina (No. 172 WTA) defeated Belgian Ysaline Bonaventure (No. 122).
Despite serving for a match, without success, in the second set (stretch with five breaks in a row), the albiceleste managed to close it in the third for the 6-3, 5-7 and 6-3 final.
It should be remembered that, on the return to the official competitions, on Saturday the Rosario started with a resounding victory against the Hungarian Reka-Luka-Jani by 6-3 and 6-1.
Facing the main draw, resignations were the order of the day in the Italian tournament: those already known from Simona Halep and Johanna Konta were joined by those of Jelena Ostapenko, Anastasija Sevastova, Iga Swiatek and Karolina Muchova.
In addition, one player tested positive for the COVID-19. The identity of the player, who had no symptoms and who is logically not from the game in the tournament, was not revealed.
