OSTAPENKO HAS A "CHESS PARTY" ON RED CLAY
On Sunday, July 21st, after the last match of the qualification day of the WTA Baltic Open 2019, 13th tennis match took place on the centre court under Jurmala's sun. Dynamic and crazy to the point of joy.

The match was held in the doubles format. Jelena Ostapenko, WTA world №79, played alongside with the President of the Latvian Chess Federation Aris Ozolins against the team of tennis freestyle player Stefan Bozic and Ilmars Krum.

The relaxed warm-up and funny catchy comments of the participants towards each other was saying only about one thing - we were going to see a truly fun show. Stefan Bojic and Jelena Ostapenko felt more confident on "their" territory, therefore the advantage in jokes and achieved points was clearly on their side. However, be that as it may, it was Stefan and Jelena who made the most comical mistakes.

However, Ilmars Krums and Aris Ozolins, along with the audience, actively supported the antics of their teammates — each ridiculous mistake was accompanied by smiles from the stands and the deep laugh of Jelena Ostapenko.

It is possible that it was the 13th match of this hot Sunday that drove the clouds from Jurmala to the very late evening.
