Lehečka was losing to his neighbor from the fourth ten of the world rankings after losing the opening serve, but he was able to turn the duel around. From 2:5, he won three games in a row, equalized and saved the first set with a 7:4 win in the tie-break. In the second set, the Czech No. 1 did not offer the opponent a chance for a reversal during her serve and celebrated her advance after an hour and a half.

Lehečka scored her second win on grass this season. He played one round last week in Stuttgart.

In the next match in London, he will face top-seeded Alcaraz, who worked hard to win over Frenchman Arthur Rinderknech in his first match on grass this year. The world number two lost the first set 4:6 to the 83rd ATP ranking player, but the 20-year-old Spanish tennis player won the next two sets 7:5 and 7:6. In his first match since his defeat in the final at Roland Garros against Serbia's Novak Djokovic, he could rejoice in advancing after two hours and 37 minutes. Lehečka will face last year's US Open winner for the first time.

Nosková lost her first match on grass, lost to Ostapenko in Birmingham

Birmingham (Great Britain) – Eighteen-year-old tennis player Linda Nosková lost in the 1st round of the tournament in Birmingham to second-seeded Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia 2:6, 7:5, 1:6. For the Czech hope, it was the first match on grass in his career. In the opening round, Barbora Strýcová was also eliminated in her third tournament after maternity leave, losing to Magdalena Frechová from Poland 6:7, 1:6.

Ostapenko defeated Nosková in the first match between them after an hour and 42 minutes. Thanks to this, the 2017 Roland Garros winner will play for the quarterfinals with the 43-year-old American legend Venus Williams. The five-time Wimbledon champion returned to grass this year after a two-year break.

Strýcová was close to winning the first set in a duel with qualifier Frechová. After the break at 5:3, she immediately lost her serve and missed six set points in the tie-break. The second set was already a clear matter for the 72nd player in the world. Strycová won the game at 0:5.

Strýcová returned to the WTA circuit after more than two years in April in Madrid, where she finished in the first round. She then managed to win one match on clay in Rome. The 37-year-old former world number one, who starts among the elite thanks to the so-called protected ranking in selected tournaments, is now preparing for Wimbledon, where she was in the semi-finals of the singles in 2019.

Barbora Krejčíková did not make it to the courts in Birmingham today as planned and Tereza Martincová, whose opening round matches were postponed to Wednesday.

The tournament ended in the first round for Katie Boulter, the winner of the previous grass tournament in Nottingham. The British tennis player lost twice to the Chinese Chu Lin 5:7.

Siniaková started on grass with a defeat at the tournament in Berlin

Berlin – Kateřina Siniaková started the grass part of the tennis season with a defeat. In the first round of the tournament in Berlin, she lost to fifth-seeded American Cori Gauff 3:6, 4:6.

Siniaková played against the world number seven on the WTA circuit for the fifth time and failed again. She was only able to beat the 19-year-old American in the Billie Jean King Cup last year.

The Czech tennis player, who ranks 54th in the WTA rankings, extended her black streak on grass. Last year, she lost all three matches on this surface.

In Berlin, she still continues in the doubles, in which she won the title with the Australian Storm Sanders last year. They are in the second round with Markéta Vondroušová.

Last year's winner Uns Džábirová from Tunisia also finished in the first round of singles. The sixth player in the world lost 6:7, 4:6 to home Jule Niemeier, who is ranked 120th.
