The ITF World Tennis Tour Disa Gran Canaria 2020 has closed its classification table. The six places for the main draw already have names, after a tough dispute for a gap on the road to the title. The Spanish Leyre Romero and Yvonne Cavalle-Reimers pass by, joining the Russian Oksana Selekhmeteva, the Brazilian Laura Pigossi, the Belgian Lara Salden, the Czech Anastasia Zarycka.
Spain has closed this main draw with the victory of its two players, the young Valencian tennis player Leyre Romero and the player from Palma de Mallorca Yvone Cavalle-Reimers, while Ángela Fita was eliminated in the final stretch of this climb to the coveted square.
The Valencian Romero, 18, started by losing her match, which she finally managed to come back after defeating the Chinese Adithya Karunaratne in a disputed three-set match. Romero closed 3-6 / 63 / 10-6 in her favor, eliminating the Hong Kong player from the competition. For her part, the Balearic Yvonne Cavalle-Reimers took her place in a Spanish match against the Valencian Angela Fita, which closed her chances of staying in the tournament. Cavalle-Reimers beat his rival with a 6-3 / 6-4, in a first set that already tipped the balance in his favor with a national duel in which he remained firm until the end.
The Spanish women will have to dispute their permanence in the main draw with the other four international players who have also obtained a place, in a day of full sun and blue sky at the Open Gran Canaria club nosolotenis de Lomo de Los Frailes.

On the other hand, the forecast did not fail with the Brazilian Laura Pigossi, number 3 in the qualifying, who beat the Dutch Eva Vedder with a tight first set at 6-4 and a comfortable 6-0 in the second, who thus lost her chance of continue in the game.
Belgian Lara Salden defeated French Emeline Dartron in the last qualifying round in a complex match for both in three sets. The Belgian started behind on the scoreboard, to give her best in a comeback that finally put the game in her favor with a 3-6 / 6-4 / 10-6.
The Czech Anastasia Zarycka had a comfortable victory against the Dutch Suzan Lamens, who did not have a chance falling from the standings with a 6-3 / 6-0 for the Czech. Although the game remained even in a first set, Zarycka soon put her game ahead, eliminating the Dutch in straight sets in her favor.
