In the 1st round of Wimbledon, Polona won 6:2, 6:1 over Annika Beck. In just over an hour of game time, Polona made 7 aces. In the 2nd round Polona will face Varvara Lepchenko (USA).
“I think I found a good rhythm today in my service games and I tried to take every opportunity on her service. I was really fighting hard and I stayed mentally strong on every point. Beck is a very consistent player, a good mover, so I had to break her rhythm.
I am starting to feel better and better on grass. It’s been a great experience so far here in Wimbledon. I’m really looking forward to the next match.”
