Swan won the ITF USA 35A competition after defeating second seed Jodie Anna Burrage in the final by a score of 6-0, 3-6, 6-3.
Dutch tennis player Arianne Hartono will face Brit Katie Swan in the first round of the 2022 Chennai Open. Hartono was involved in the US Open qualifiers earlier but was defeated in the second round by Clara Burel 6-4, 3-6, 4-6. Before that, the Dutchwoman had taken part in the WTA 125K event at Vancouver but was eliminated in the second round after losing 6-2, 2-6, 3-6 to Emma Navarro. The Chennai Open sets a good stage for Hartono to step out of her comfort zone and deliver a performance that could put her on the map of world tennis.
The Chennai Open will be the first competitive competition for Katie Swan in over a month. The player from Great Britain might have been out of action for a considerable amount of time but her last tournament was one to remember. Swan won the ITF USA 35A competition after defeating second seed Jodie Anna Burrage in the final by a score of 6-0, 3-6, 6-3. She will be hoping to bring the same form to India.
Arianna Hartono vs Katie Swan are scheduled to face each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 WTA Chennai Open on Tuesday, September 13. The tournament is scheduled to begin on September 12 and end on September 18.
