Nadia Podoroska debuted her record at Wimbledon with a hard-fought victory over American Ann Li 6-4, 7-6 (1).
Podoroska, who had only participated once at Wimbledon, with a defeat in the first round of the qualifying round in 2017, took the victory in an hour and a half of meeting and after a great comeback in the second set.
Argentina went 2-5 down and had to save two set points, before managing to equal five and beat the American in the tiebreak.
This victory is also Podoroska’s third on grass, all this season. The Roland Garros semi-finalist in 2020, will face in the second round the winner of the duel between Alison Riske and Tereza Martincova.
