Kuzmova who is coached now by Michal Mertinak and maintains her condition at the Slovak National Tennis Centre, was introduced to tennis at age four by her father, Radovan, who used to be a head of a tennis club.
At the start of the 2020 season, Viktoria Kuzmova is far from the most successful results. Before her first match in Lyon, talented Slovak player won only two fights in two months.
Kuzmova has a brlliant first serve, but sometines it doesn’t work. Also she has a bad habbit – to direct a ball to the net and she does not always comprehend her mistakes.
In the first round in Lyon Kuzmova passed Kerkhove (6-2, 2-6, 6-2) in three sets. There was a recession during the match, but in the third set she was able to return to the game and win an important match. A tennis player in her potential deserves a place in the TOP-50, where she was in the last season. We do not think that for a long time Victoria will be on the decline, although there are some questions about her current condition.
The 132nd racket of the world Teresa Martintsova won only the second match of the season in Lyon in the main draw of the WTA tournaments.
2020 seems to be fairly succesful for Martincova. She repeated her best score from Australian Open, when she got to the third qualification round. At Qatar Open she sucesfully went through qualification by defeating Kristyna Pliskova and Misaki Doi. She reached second round at the tournament by defeating Misaki Doi again and losing to Maria Sakkari. This was the first time she reached main draw at Premier 5 tournament.
The rival in the first round was not easy for Martintsova. An experienced Romanian tennis player Ana Bogdan made lots of effort to gain victory, but at the decisive moments of the third set Martintsova played more confidently (6-3, 4-6. 6-3). There was no great advantage of the lady frpm Czech Republic during the match, so that we could definitely speak about Teresa’s excellent playing condition.
