After her resounding debut against Polish Magda Linette (44th), Argentine tennis player Nadia Podoroska (38th) will face Italian Camila Giorgi (71st) on Wednesday for the second round of the Canadian WTA 1000.
The 24-year-old Rosario, who dispatched 6-1 and 6-2 in an hour of play to the one born in Poznan, will face the two-time champion at the highest level (Hertogenbosch 2015 and Linz 2018), daughter and pupil of his father Sergio, a native of La Plata and who fought in the Malvinas war, who surprised and beat Belgian Elise Mertens 6-3 and 7-5 (16th). The game will be played from 15.00 (ARG).
The record favors the albiceleste 2-0, who celebrated in three sets in Moscow 2016 and Linz 2020. The winner will be measured against the Czech Petra Kvitova (12th), seventh best seeded of the tournament, who won a double 6-4 against the French Fiona Ferro.
