Tennis: Teichmann finally holds his revenge against Estonian Kanepi – rts.ch

by archysport

Jil Teichmann has successfully crossed the stage of the 1st round in Chicago. Ranked 38th in the world hierarchy, the Swiss no2 took the measure of Kaia Kanepi (WTA 66) 7-6 (7/3) 7-5 and will face Magda Linette (54) in the next round. Viktorija Golubic (46) on the other hand failed against Amanda Anisimova (82) by losing 6-0 5-7 6-4.

Jil Teichmann – who has never been so well ranked in the hierarchy – thus obtained his first success against this opponent, after losing their first 2 clashes 5 and 3 years ago.

The Swiss born in Barcelona quickly made the hole in the first set, before experiencing a slump. She was able to recover in time to win the 7/3 tie-break, before making the decisive break to lead 6-5 and conclude on her service. In the next round, she will be opposed to the Polish Magda Linette. The 2 players have never yet been opposed.

However, nothing is going well for Viktorija Golubic, beaten by the American Amanda Anisimova (WTA 82) 6-0 5-7 6-4. Since her Olympic title won in doubles with Belinda Bencic in Tokyo, the Zurich native has won only one game in 5 tournaments.
