A group of tennis players heading to Warsaw doesn’t bring you to your knees. Older fans, who have good memories, will have tears in the eyes of Venus Williams, Justin Henin or Amelie Mauresmo. Not only did they all play in our stadiums in Warsaw, but they also won individual copies of the J&S Cup. It is worth noting that he is not yet born, which pleases everyone. About twelve years ago, Polish singles reached the quarter-finals as far as they could possibly be. And now any accusation can be faced in the presence of Iga Švetik.
Roland Garros, a two-time champion and the top WTA ranking player, is the only tennis player from the top “30” of this ranking to play in Warsaw. Other players will have to come to terms with supporting and episodic roles, and they are often played in such roles. However, who from the background plan will be able to attract attention?
Jasmine Paolini, who specializes in playing on brick powder, might come as a surprise – the same surface the tournament will be held on in Warsaw. Last year, the 26-year-old won the main series for the first time, and this season she showed her good side against Sabalenka (won), Kvitova and Jabeur (minor defeats). In addition, there is an interesting story behind it with the Polish threads.
“I feel 100 percent Italian”
– I started playing at the age of five in Lucca County in a small club. Thanks to the friendly environment, I immediately felt at home and wanted to continue it. My uncle Adriano Paolini plays tennis, and my father also grabs the racket from time to time. Unlike many of the tour’s friends, Jasmine quickly flew out of the family nest. Her father and uncle look at her career from the side without encroaching on the competencies of the head coach.

Jasmine’s mother was born in Poland. I traveled to Italy with the idea of business. She found not only a job, but also a husband. The family settled in Tuscany, but cultural traditions were nurtured. Jasmine can communicate in Polish and has visited her homeland several times. The tournament in Warsaw is a good opportunity to visit the mother’s family again.
– I feel 100% Italian, but I was in Poland and I speak Polish, but I still miss visiting Ghana. I would like to make up for it, the tennis player said in an interview with “Tuttosport”. Because in her veins also flows blood from Central Africa. The original ancestor was Ghanaian. Such a trip would certainly not be possible on the occasion of tennis competitions, because in Ghana it is difficult to find the smallest events, let alone to host the top players.
Only Christmas is elusive
Currently, Paolini is ranked 61st in the WTA rankings. Only Camila Gyorgy and Martina Trevisan, who defeated Iga شفwieczyk in Warsaw, are the only ones ahead of her. If Jasmine follows in her old friend’s footsteps, it will be one of the biggest sensations of the season. While the Polish woman seems out of her reach, other tennis players certainly won’t spread terror on her side of the court.
However, there is no doubt that currently women’s tennis in Italy is in worse shape than men’s. The golden age, when Sarah Irani, Flavia Pennetta and Roberta Vinci were at the front, passed a few years ago and so far there are no candidates ready to replace them. Paolini is already 26 years old, and while she’s making constant progress, she’s not a huge fan of major events. He maintains his place in the top 100 thanks to his good performance in tournaments like Warsaw, when most of the top players focus on training or resting.
The WTA 250 competition begins in Warsaw on July 25 at the Legia stadiums. The biggest star will be Iga Świątek, who will perform in front of the Polish audience for the second time this season. In April at Radom, I lost only one game in two games and led our team to the Billie Jean King Cup Finals.
