Nadia Podoroska made a good first step in the WTA 1000 in Miami: she beat Mayar Sherif (124th) 6-3 6-1 to get into the second round of the tournament. Russia’s Ekaterina Alexandrova (34th in the world) will be her next rival.
Podoroska lost two of her first three serves and it was the most difficult moment of the match. Then he was able to straighten the story in the first set and close it 6-3; the second set was from end to end for Argentina.
In the second round, Podoroska will face Ekaterina Alexandrova (34th in the world). They met only once, in Linz 2020, and it was a victory for the Russian 6-1 and 6-2. Elina Svitolina (5th seed and whom Podoroska beat at Roland Garros 2020), would be the rival in the next round.
