Beck has scored her first two Top 20 wins this year, against Eugenie Bouchard and Samantha Stosur.
On the grounds of the tournament, Carla Suárez Navarro was meeting a bunch of her young fans.
Suárez Navarro held an autograph session earlier in the week, signing and posing for photos with fans.
Suárez Navarro set her career-high of No.14 last year and is holding strong in the Top 20 right now.
The Spanish No.1 also took some time out for a group photo with BNP Paribas Katowice Open ballkids.
Magdalena Rybarikova has also been spending time with the young ones this week - at Kids Day.
Rybarikova didn't just meet the kids and pose for photos with them, she helped them play some tennis.
Dozens of kids came out to the BNP Paribas Katowice Open for some friendly mini-court competition.
And the kids showed some exemplary tennis etiquette after all of the Kids Day competitions.
The tournament is in its second year on the WTA calendar, having made its debut just last year.
