Twenty-five-year-old Brady, who lost to Japan’s Naomi Osaka during her premiere in the grand slam final in Melbourne, made 25 unforced mistakes in a duel with Kontaveit today and didn’t make a single breakball. She stayed on the court for less than an hour.

“I was expecting a very difficult match, but I’m very happy with the way I played today, and I’m glad I’m in the second round,” Kontaveit said on the court.

Injured Barty will not play in Dubai either

World tennis number one Ashleigh Barty will not even appear next week at the tournament in Dubai. Twenty-four-year-old Australian is missing in Doha this week due to a left leg injury.

“Unfortunately, I have to resign from the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. Maybe I will play in the tournament next year,” said Barty, who suffers from a stretched thigh muscle from the Australian Open, where she was eliminated in the quarterfinals after defeating Karolína Muchová.

He expects to return to the WTA circuit in late March in Miami.

The young Danka eliminated the number one tournament in Lyon

The tournament in Lyon lost the number one Ekaterina Alexandrovova in the first round. The Russian player lost 3: 6, 4: 6 to eighteen-year-old Danish Clara Tauson, who advanced to the main competition from the qualification. Another rival of the former junior world number one will be the Hungarian Tímea Babosová.

Tauson, who ranks 139th in the world rankings, had a total of seven matchwords in a duel with the 33rd world player Alexandrovova in three games. Finally, she rejoiced after an hour and 33 minutes.

The young Danka is playing the elite series tournament for the third time. Last September at Roland Garros, she surprised in the first round with a victory over American Jennifer Brady, a finalist at the recent Australian Open.
