Only one match separates Czech teen tennis players Linda Nosková, Linda Fruhvirtová and Sára Bejlek from entering the main tournament of the Grand Slam US Open. They handled the second round brilliantly in the playoffs.
17-year-old Noskova did not give a chance to Canadian Eugenia Bouchard, who until recently was a shining star in the world of tennis, overcoming her 6: 2, 6: 3 in less than an hour. Only the Russian Anastasia Zakharova separates her from the main stage of the tournament.
Equally small Fruhvirtová even gave Brazilian Elvis a “Canary” as she only needed two sets to advance. She is now waiting for the French Chloe Paquet.
And Bejlek, who is one year younger than her, also tackled Australian Hon 6:4, 6:1, although she was losing 1:4 in the first set.
But then she won 11 out of 12 matches and she can rejoice after 68 minutes. In the qualifying final, she will face Britain’s expert Heather Watson, the four-time winner of the WTA circuit.
Nosková made her main stage debut of this year’s Grand Slam in Paris, and Fruhvirtová and Bejlek are waiting for the premiere.
In the men’s qualifiers, Tomas Match, who defeated Slovakian Kovalek, advanced. The failure of Dalibor Svrčina, was not enough for the Austrian Novak.
Qualification for the US Open Tennis Championships in New York:
Women – round two: Noskova (4-CR) – Bocharova (Canada) 6:2, 6:3, L. Fruhvirtová (Czech Republic) – Alvesova (poo) 6: 0, 6: 2, Biglik (Czech Republic). Honova (Australia) 6:4, 6:1.
Men – Round Two: problems (20-CZE) – Kovalik (SR) 7:6 (8:6), 6:3, Novak (31-rak.) – Muscle strain (Czech Republic) 6:3, 6:4.
