Masarova gives the first victory to a Spain already eliminated in the BJKC in Seville

The Spaniard comes back from the Polish Kawa to open the last point


The Spanish Billie Jean King Cup team signed its first victory this Friday with the victory of Rebeka Masarova over the Polish Katarzyna Kawa, in a tie with nothing at stake after Canada’s pass on Thursday within Group C.

The host at La Cartuja in Seville intended to come out at least with a good taste in her mouth from a new failed attempt to give Spain the sixth crown in the formerly called Federation Cup. After the 3-0 defeat against Canada on the first day and the North American victory against Poland on the next, the scores were settled, but Masarova partially retaliated against Kawa.

The Spanish player achieved her first individual victory in the tournament with a great comeback (2-6, 6-3, 6-2), releasing in time the nerves that had already gripped her game against the Canadian junior Marina Stakusic. Masarova endured a very close second set and forced the third with a single break in the eighth game.

The Spanish pressure took effect at the beginning of the decisive set, with an early break that undermined the confidence of a player outside the ‘Top 200’. Masarova did not let the victory slip away, with one more break in the seventh game, with which Spain hopes to say goodbye by showing its face in front of its audience.

Next, Sara Sorribes will face Magda Linette who opened the year by reaching the semifinals at the Australian Open and who closes it established among the 25 best players in the WTA. The Castellón player has won the three previous matches, although the last one was played three years ago, and she will seek to give Spain the victory in the tie without needing the doubles.
