After one year, Paula Ormaechea (287th) will once again be part of a main draw. His return will be at the WTA 250 in Parma and will have a great challenge against Caroline Garcia (56th).
The opportunity came after entering qualifying in the Italian tournament, where she beat Varvara Flink (181st) and, after a 0-5 in the third set, she beat Stefanie Voegele (131st) 6-2, 2 -6 and 7-5.
In a 250 tournament, the 28-year-old Argentine had her last performance in July 2019, in Jurmala, where she also surpassed qualifying and lost in the round of 16 against Nina Stojanovic. Last year he played the Prague tournament, a WTA 125, and lost in the first round.
In Parma, in turn, Serena Williams, who starts as a favorite, will make his presentation before the local Lisa Pigato, from the qualy. His sister, Venus, will debut against the Slovak Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, while the Croatian Petra martic will play with Varvara Gracheva.
In case of advancing, Argentina could be measured in the second round against the winner of the duel between the Swiss Viktorija Golubic and the German Anna-Lena Friedsam.
Meanwhile, in Serbia, another Argentine continues to advance: Nadia Podoroska surpassed her debut and got into the second wheel of Belgrade.
