Viktorija Golubic performs a coup

Viktorija Golubic performs a coup

In February, Viktorija Golubic ranked 35th in the world and did not need to qualify for a tournament like the one in Estonia. Now the 29-year-old can still stop relegation at the end of the season. Against the 27-year-old American, who returned to the top of the world in the semi-finals at this year’s Australian Open, Switzerland increased to 3-1 victories in head-to-head duels.

Success against the fourth-placed in the tournament gives Viktoria Golubic a chance to score well in Estonia. In the round of 16, the Swiss will meet Karolina Moschova, who is currently outside the top 200. The Czech achieved her highest ranking (WTA 19) in May 2021 before falling behind due to injuries.

Mr. Bencic

Belinda Pensik also plays Tallinn. The second-seeded Switzerland showed no problems against Estonian world number 400 Jelena Maligina with a 6-0 6-2 victory.

The Swiss will also play against British rival Katie Poulter for the first time and will be the favorite. The Olympic champion is currently number 14 in the world rankings. The field is led by local champion and world number 4, Annette Kontaveit. Belinda Bencic has to make a coup this week if she is to return to the race for the WTA Championships, which will take place in Fort Worth from October 31 to November 7.
