The Spanish tennis player Cristina Bucsa made her debut this Monday in the Tokyo tournament, in the WTA 500 category and played on hard courts, with a victory against the Japanese Rina Saigo (6-1, 6-2), and will face the American Jessica Pegula.

Busca, number 87 in the world, needed only an hour and a quarter to eliminate the local tennis player, who achieved a break in the first game of the match. However, Chisinau responded by winning the next six.
