Chwalińska and Kawa in the quarter-finals

Czerwiec 28, 2018

 

We know the best eight players of this year’s Bella Cup tournament. In one of the quarter-finals we will see two Polish representatives.

Katarzyna Kawa has shown herself from a very good side on Thursday. After very harsh first round, this time she smoothly went through to the next stage of the tournament. On the central court, she won with Cindy Burger from Netherlands 6:4, 6:3. Polish player is in a great condition recently. Few weeks ago, she won the tournament with similar rank as the Portuguese Obidos.

Last matches gave me a lot of new confidence. I know I can win tournaments with similar rank. That feeling helps me with successful games at the Bella Cup tournament

–said Katarzyna Kawa.

In the last match of the day, Maja Chwalińska won with Switłana Pirażenka. Belarussian player had a chance of a longer rest, as in the previous match her rival retired in the very first game. However, she did not use that opportunity. Chwalińska won 6:2, 6:3.

Because of today’s results, in one of the semi-finals we will see two Polish players standing against each other – Maja Chwalińska and Katarzyna Kawa.
