The rain made its own on the side of Granby in Canada and only Nuria Parrizas Diaz was able to validate her ticket for the quarter-finals of this tournament.
The rain did its thing. The program of the day was greatly disrupted on the side of the WTA 250 tournament in Granby in Canada, on hard. Only one meeting was able to come to an end. If it had started at 8:45 p.m. French time on Tuesday, it was interrupted several times, before finally being able to finish. And it was the Spaniard Nuria Parrizas Diaz, 64th player in the world and seeded n°5, who validated her ticket for the quarter-finals, after her victory against the Briton Harriet Dart, 93rd player in the world, in two sets ( 6-2, 6-4) and 1h54 of play. In the first round, however, it was the Briton who got two entry break points. Had to lose the last three games, including the last two which were particularly hotly contested. At 3-2, Harriet Dart lost a first serve, before, in the process, wasting five opportunities to unbreak. On her next face-off, the lower ranked of the two saved three double-break points, synonymous with set points, before losing on the fourth and last (6-2). Finally, in the second and final set, despite a first break point saved, the Spaniard gave up her entry service, before unbreaking in stride.
Kasatkina will have to return to conclude his meeting
At 2-2, Nuria Parrizaz Diaz had to save three new break points, before taking the service of her opponent of the day in stride, on her second possibility. After a new break point saved just after, the better ranked of the two thought she could conclude at 5-3. Despite a match point, the 64th player in the world gave up her serve on her competitor’s second break point. But the latter was unable to confirm, and, on her final face-off, despite two first balls saved, the 93rd player in the world gave up a final serve, and therefore the match (6-4). The Russian Daria Kasatkina, 10th player in the world and seeded n°1, will have to return to conclude her meeting against the Polish Magdalena Frech, 104th player in the world, while the score was 6-3, 5-0 in her favor, after 1h08 of play. Finally, two other meetings could not even start. That between the Hungarian Anna Bondar, 56th player in the world and seeded n°4, to the German Tatjana Maria, 92nd player in the world, and that between the Canadian Katherine Sebov, 307th player in the world and beneficiary of a wild card, to the Australian Daria Saville, 73rd player in the world and seeded n°9.
