In the first round, her rival was Nao Hibino. The Japanese woman in the bracket was positioned 15th and was 129th in the WTA ranking. This meant that both competitors were divided by 26 places.
In the first set, the Pole had virtually nothing to say. She won the first game, but then it was only worse. Each subsequent Coffee service gem ended with a breakout. Thus, the Japanese won 6: 1 in just over half an hour.
In the second set, Kawa managed to break the Japanese and take the lead 3: 1, but shortly after she lost her pass. An even match lasted until the end of the eleventh game. In the twelfth, Hibino managed to break our player again and won 7: 5. Thus, she won the entire match, and Katarzyna Kawa lost the chance to play in the Australian Open.
