Alison Van Uytvanck has revenge on Kovinic at WTA tournament in Romania


Alison Van Uytvanck (WTA 61) has qualified for the second round of the WTA250 tournament in Romanian Cluj-Napoca on Tuesday. In the opening round she beat the Montenegrin Danka Kovinic (WTA 76) in two sets: twice 6-4.


Van Uytvanck, for example, has her revenge on Kovinic, who knocked her out of the Tenerife tournament a week ago. The first game ever between the two players, in September 2020 in Istanbul, was also won by Kovinic.

In the second round, the winner of the game between Estonian second seed Anett Kontaveit (WTA 14), currently in top form, and Serbian Aleksandra Krunic (WTA 44) awaits.

The 27-year-old Van Uytvanck is the only Belgian on the table of the Transylvania Open. In the doubles she was eliminated on Monday evening alongside home player Jaqueline Cristian with a 6-4 and 6-3 loss against Krunic and the Dutch Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove.

Not in Belgian selection

Unlike the other Belgian top players, she is not part of the selection for the final tournament of the Billie Jean King Cup (ex-Fed Cup) in Prague in early November. According to captain Johan Van Herck, after consultation with her entourage, it was decided that the Grimbergse “remains active on the WTA circuit” and therefore is missing for the country tournament.
