Martincová she lost the first set in a tie-break, in which she was able to erase the 1:5 deficit, but the end belonged to the twenty-four-year-old British woman. The second set was a clear affair for the 28-year-old Czech, and the third set came next.
It was balanced for a long time and the decision was brought only by Martincová's lost serve at 3:4. Burrage bounced back to a difference of two points and took the match to the winning end without any problems.
Martincová thus did not improve this year's record even in Nottingham, where in addition to last year's semi-final she played in the quarter-final in 2021. On the WTA circuit, she only made it past the first round once in the current season.
The tournament in Nottingham is going ahead as planned despite the extensive police action. A part of the city is closed due to the discovery of three corpses in the streets of the city, in addition, a van tried to run people over. According to the police, who have already arrested the suspect, all the events are connected.
