WTA in Adelaide. Iga Świątek will not have it easy

Last season, Leylah Fernandez reached the finals of the tournament in New York, eliminating such big players as Naomi Osaka, Elina Switolina and Aryna Sabalenka on the way. In this most important match, however, she succumbed to the equally young Emma Raducanu and had to put aside her dreams of a victory in the Grand Slam. In the new season, he will certainly try to refer to those successes. She proved it already in the first round of the tournament in Adelaide, beating confidently Ekaterina Aleksandrowa 6: 3, 6: 4. Fernandez is ranked 24th in the WTA ranking.
