Polish tennis is often a thriving part of the nation’s sporting scene. One player who looks set to continue that is Lodz-born Magdalena Frech. The 21-year-old is already making huge waves in her career, reaching as high as 115th on the WTA Rankings and also reaching her first two Grand Slams in 2018. She reached the First Round and Second Round of the Australian and French Opens tournaments, respectively.
Her WTA Tour debut arrived in 2013, when she played alongside Katazyna Pyka in the 2013 BNP Paribas Katowice Open. Her first tournament wins arrived in 2016, when she won in Nishitama, Japana. Since then, she was won in Germany twice, winning in Leipzig and Braunschweig in August 2017.
Her first win at Doubles level came in 2017, too, when she won in Manchester, UK alongside An-Sophie Mestach.
The young Pole has made a habit of competing at the top, too, taking on the likes of Patty Schnyder and Carla Suarez Navarro in close-run matches. At such a young age, she has much improvement to come, still. And that should be a worrying thing to consider for much of the WTA: Frech looks like a fantastic young talent in the making.
