Heavy rain stopped part of the Bella Cup 2018 elimination games from happening.
On the second day of the tournament, 11 out of the 16 scheduled matches. It was not a lucky day for Polish players. Almost all of them ended their adventure with Bella Cup 2018. There is still a chance for Oliwia Szymczuch, who will be facing Argentinian Victoria Bosio in the deciding match.
In the last elimination round, we were able to see only three matches. Players who won the place in the main tournament are: Ksenia Laskutowa (Russia), Albina Kabibulina (Uzbekistan) and Joana Eidukonyte (Lithuania). In the last match that day, Laskutowa faced Julia Oczachowska and won 6:1, 6:2.
I gained priceless experience here. Girls play really well, not as in lower rank tournaments. Me loosing was mainly caused by the fact that I have ruined too many shots.
– summed up Julia Oczachowska.
Five elimination games will take place on Tuesday morning. Tomorrow is also a beginning of the main Bella Cup 2018 tournament. Amongst the players on the central court, we will see Katarzyna Piter. That great player representing Poznań, will face Russian Merina Melnikowa, seeded number 5. Also, Stefania Rogozińska-Dzik will play her first match in the tournament. Regular Legia Warszawa player, who received the wild card from tournament’s organizers, will stand against Jesika Maleckova. Czech contender seeded number 8 in the Bella Cup 2018 tournament.
