Against Bonaventure, she performed flawlessly in the opening set, while her opponent was unable to establish herself at all. Siniaková won all fifteens in the opening four games and did not lose a single one on her serve for the entire set. In the second set, the game was even. The Belgian reacted to the first loss of serve, and then Siniaková confirmed the second break at 6:5 with a clear game.
