The USA champion Serena Williams as a back to success after the Australian semifinal with Naomi Osaka thanks to a clear 6-3 6-2 against Italian very young player Lisa Pigato, thus reaching Katerina Siniakova in the second round of the WTA Parma Open 2021.
In short, no surprise. The final moment is very sweet, sealed with a hug, with Lisa Pigato who puts the emotion aside and asks for a photo. "She told me that she is only seventeen and that it was her first tournament in her career, I think it was a great experience for her," confessed Serena in the post-match interview.
Despite playing a very good game, the Italian tennis player manages to move the score only on a few occasions. In the second set, with a call to serve to close the match at 5-2, Serena obviously makes no mistake.
First win of the clay court season.
