The tournament in Bogota was won by a young Colombian tennis player Osori
The clay tournament in Bogota was surprisingly won by the domestic Colombian tennis player María Camila Osori. The nineteen-year-old player, who started on a wild card, defeated the fifth-placed Slovenian Tamara Zidanšeková in today’s final 5: 7, 6: 3, 6: 4.
Osori won the premiere title only during her fourth participation in the main competition of the WTA Tour. The young Colombian, who ranks 180th in the rankings, scored her first victory over her opponent in the top 100 in the second round thanks to her victory over Tereza Martincová, and she did not lose a set on the way to the final. Zidanšeková, who is almost a hundred places higher in the WTA Tour standings, was beaten after almost three hours.
