WTA | Arruabarrena extends his streak in Bogotá to beat Paolini

Lara Arruabarrena remains faithful to the idyll that unites her with the city of Bogotá and the Colsanitas Cup, of which she was champion in 2012 and finalist in 2017 and 2018. After overcoming the previous one without losing a game in two games and debuting in the main draw with another result almost as overwhelming (6-0 and 6-1 against the Colombian Plaza) She was also able to beat a much bigger rival like the 25-year-old Italian and the 103rd in the world, Jasmine Paolini.

The tolosarra came back to win by 2-6, 6-4 and 6-2 in 1h: 51 and show that she is once again a competitive player. In the quarterfinals he will face on Friday the Chilean Seguel or the French Tan, players with a worse ranking and less experience than her.

Lara did not have it easy to overcome a rival of reza, tiny (1.60) but bully, who put the game uphill after scoring the first set. But the Spanish clung to a track that brings back very good memories and in which she always obtained good results to turn the situation around with patience and precision until she took the victory.

Heads and tails for Parrizas and Bolsava

Different luck for the other two Spanish women who remained in the Bogotá box. Nuria Parrizas beat the Dutch Rus by 7-6 (4), 2-6 and 6-1 and she will be seen in the quarterfinals on Friday with the Bulgarian Tomova, who eliminated the Chinese, eighth seed, Yafan Wang (double 6-3). Aliona Bolsava could not beat indefatigable veteran Sara Errani, who gave a lesson in pride while driving the Catalan of Moldovan origin on edge with her services from behind in the second set. The 33-year-old Italian, who dismounted Sara Sorribes on Tuesday, won by a double 6-4 and will face the Slovenian Zidansek or her compatriot Gatto-Motticone.
