WTA Madrid: Elina Svitolina gets a defeat after a good performance the Highlights

In the WTA event at the Mutua Madrid Open 2023, it should be noted that Elina Svitolina is in good shape, but with something missing in terms of instinct that she had before. This also explains the defeat of the Ukrainian against the Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

There is time to come back well after pregnancy. It came the victory of the very young Mirra Andreeva against Leylah Fernandez. The fifteen-year-old Russian surprised everyone and defeated the finalist of the US Open 2021 with a clear 6-3, 6-4.

Camila Giorgi, Jasmine Paolini and Lucia Bronzetti have in fact left Madrid prematurely. The former, who challenged Mayar Sherif, was forced to retire before the start of the third set with a right knee problem. It is the same headache that prevented her from taking the field on the decisive day of the Billie Jean King Cup.

Paolini and Bronzetti, on the other hand, lost respectively in two sets against Magdalena Frech and Lesia Tsurenko. Eugenie Bouchard wins against Dayana Yastremska. Aliaksandra Sasnovich beats Elina Svitolina, in the first big wind after the come back after the birth.

Among today's results, including Emma Raducanu's forfeit. If the program closes when there is a quarter of an hour to midnight with the success of the French Alizé Cornet in comeback on the Romanian Elena-Gabriela Ruse, the result that more than any other amazes is that of the twenty-five year old from Zaragoza Irene Burillo Escorihuela, capable of beat a veteran like Estonian Kaia Kanepi.

The men's results

Stan Wawrinka, who is in great form at the Mutua Madrid Open, has no intention of letting go. The Swiss defeated a proactive Maxime Cressy in the third set tie-break. Out again David Goffin and Diego Schwartzman, who are unable to remove the crisis of results.

The Belgian surrendered to the usual Roberto Carballes Baena; the Argentinian suffered a tough defeat to qualifier Hugo Grenier. After having two important victories in the qualifying tournament, Matteo Arnaldi managed to win his first match in a Masters 1000 event in Madrid.

In the end, the numerous ups and downs experienced by Benoit Paire did not disorient the young Italian tennis player. Arnaldi, one step away from defeat, played very aggressively and restored order to the chaos of a match on and off.

The 6-1, 3-6, 7-6(6) inflicted on the Frenchman will allow him to challenge Casper Ruud in the second round of the Mutua Madrid Open.
