The four top seeded athletes at the Predator Antalya Open 2019 presented themselves today in top form.

Kristina Tkach (RUS), the #1 seeded player has shown no mercy with her opponents today so far. First, she overpowered Aleksandra Guleikova (RUS) 7:1, then she defeated Sinem Kokten (TUR) 7:3. None of her opponents had a realistic chance during their respective matches. Tkach has booked her seat in the single elimination stage of the last 16 player which will be played tomorrow morning at 10:00 local time.

Tkach is joined by #2 seed Marharyta Fefilava (BLR). The Belarussian stormed off today to a 7:0 victory over Lynn Pijpers (NED) and 7:2 over birthday girl Yvonne Ullmann-Hybler (GER). Ana Gradisnik (SLO) and Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) were the next two seeded players who also took clear victories today. A remarkable fact is that out of the eight players who made it to the single elimination over the winner’s round, four are from Germany. Pia Filler, Melanie Suessenguth, Tina Vogelmann and Diana Stateczny (all GER) complete the list of the contestants who booked their seat in the round of the last 16 over the winner’s side.

Kristina Tkach RUS v Veronika Ivanovskaia GER
