Riske’s match postponed

June 27, 2013

Alison Riske of Peters Township had her second-round match Thursday against Poland’s Urszula Radwanska postponed because of rain. The match has been rescheduled for today. It will be the first match played on Court 17 and has a scheduled start time of 6:30 a.m. Eastern.

Riske, ranked 126th in the latest word rankings, won her first-round Wimbledon match Tuesday at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, defeating 31st-seeded Romina Oprandi of Switzerland. Riske was leading the match 6-7 (5), 7-5, 3-1 when Oprandi retired with an injury. Riske is now 3-0 against Oprandi.

Riske is 2-1 in her career against Radwanska, who is ranked 44th in the world. Radwanska won the most recent match with Riske in three sets in the first round of last year’s Australian Open.
