Karolína Plíšková started the match well and went quickly into the lead 3: 0. The holder of the wild card then managed to correct the score and even took the service from the native of Louny at 1: 5, but she no longer saved the set. The Czech Republic won it with a ratio of 6: 3.
The second set started as if copying the first set. Plíšková led 3: 0, but then the Czech Republic also chose a weaker moment. She hesitated twice for service and was suddenly leveled. However, McNally’s favorite immediately took the submission again, which turned out to be crucial. The set was won by the tournament four with a ratio of 6: 4, when she used the second match ball.
Twenty-two-seated Karolína Muchová will face the Spaniard Sara Sorribesová. Kateřina Siniaková will play with Anastasia Sevastová from Latvia. Successful qualifier Kristýna Plíšková will face Danka Koviničová from Montenegro.
