Polona continues with great performances. Today she won in her second round match 6:7, 6:2, 6:2 over Varvara Lepchenko. “I have to say I’m really satisfied with the result, with the way I stayed on court mentally and was fighting even if I wasn’t playing my best tennis; my serve wasn’t really working that well.”
For the first time, Polona will play in the third round of Wimbledon. She has reached second round in 2011 and 2014 and third round of Roland Garros in 2010. “It’s great to achieve the best result so far in Wimbledon and to get to that third round, especially from the qualifying. I am going to enjoy this victory for now and then we will make plans for the next match.” Her next match will be on Saturday against Svetlana Kuznetsova.
