After the victory against Lisa Pigato in the first round of the WTA Parma Open 2021, Serena Williams fails to break down the resistance of Katerina Siniakova. The twenty-three-time Grand Slam champion lost with the final score of 6(4) -7 2-6.
Fresh from a relatively good first set, in which she does not even exploit a chance for 6-4, Serena goes completely off. Although she has a flicker in the boot. Siniakova, however, easily recovers the disadvantage break and with a much wider package of solutions (as well as a better physical condition) practically spreads.
The American has time to move the score only in another case: emblematic of the final 7-6 (4) 6-2 that she matures at the threshold of two hours of play. Waiting for the Czech Republic, returning from her fourth career victory against one of the top ten players in the world, will be Anna-Lena Friedsam and Caroline Garcia.
