Anastasia easily won the first set, but then her opponent managed to turn the tide of the match

Ukrainian tennis player Anastasia Soboleva suffered a dramatic defeat from a representative of Poland Katarzyna Kawa in the first round of the Challenger Series tournament in Bastade (Sweden).

The match lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes. The 20-year-old Ukrainian won the first set without any problems. But in the second set, the opposite happened – having realized three breaks against one, the experienced Pole restored parity.

The third set developed extremely dramatically. Having reached the score of 5:5, the opponents were able to defend their serves only once. The ending ultimately went to Kava – 7:5 and passage to the next stage.

This defeat was Soboleva’s fourth in a row. Let us recall that Anastasia had previously been knocked out in the first round of the 2024 Wimbledon qualifying round.
