Iga Świątek vs Magdalena Fręch – two Polish top seeds of the BNP PARIBAS Poland Open will face each other in the 1st round.

It will be an undoubted celebration of tennis, though finished with only one winner. Ranking’s No. 1, Iga Świątek, will face Polish champion Magdalena Fręch (WTA 84) and it will be the only Polish clash of the 1st round. Martyna Kubka will play with Elisabetta Cocciaretto, Weronika Falkowska with Petra Martić and Maja Chwalińska’s opponent will emerge after the preliminaries. It is worth emphasising that Kubka, Falkowska and Chwalińska will play in the tournament thanks to the wild cards.

On the court, we will see, among others, an expert on the clay courts and six-times champion of Grand Slam doubles – Kristina Mladenovic. Four of these triumphs were achieved in the courts of Roland Garros. This year, she won there together with her countrywoman Caroline Garcia, who will also play in the BNP PARIBAS Poland Open! It was the 2nd success of Mladenovic and Garcia pair after their win in Paris in 2016. In BNP PARIBAS Poland Open, Mladenovic will face Anna Bondar, and Caroline Garcia will face Misaki Doi. Due to an injury, Yulia Putintseva has pulled out of the tournament last minute.

A storm and torrent disrupted the Saturday competition in the 1st round of the preliminaries. All four Polish players, who finished their matches, went out of the game. Weronika Baszak and Rebeka Masarova’s clash was suspended at a two-two tie in the 1st set. All three games scheduled on Saturday were moved to the next day.

The Sunday games will start at noon.
