No worries for Krejcikova, Kvitova and Teichmann

No surprises in the first round of the WTA tournament in Cincinnati. Barbora Krejcikova and Petra Kvitova have upheld their seed status. Guest, Jil Belen Teichmann outclassed Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea (6-2, 6-0).

The first two seeds to enter the tournament in Cincinnati won without shaking. Barbora Krejcikova and Petra Kvitova enforced logic. In straight sets, they beat Daria Kasatkina (6-3, 6-2) and Madison Keys (7-5, 6-4). If the favorites easily won this Monday in Ohio, the most convincing victory of the day is to be put to the credit of a wild card: Jil Belen Teichmann. Invited, the Swiss won in 1 hour against Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea (6-2, 6-0). The Swiss left only two games in the 40th of the WTA rankings. Without a slump at 4-0 in the first round, Jelena Ostapenko could have done the same against Tamara Zidansek (7-5, 6-1). Her difficulties in finishing the first set were the only black spot in her straight-set victory over the Slovenian.
