The n. 1 liquid in two sets Tsurenko, the Japanese continues in the difficult relationship with the Parisian land. Excellent performance by Martina, 6-0 6-2 at the Dart. Queen eliminated 2021 Krejcikova
It is her tournament, the one that has given her the greatest satisfaction in her career, and again this year she started off great. Martina Trevisan began her adventure at Roland Garros 2022 easily beating the English Harriet Dart with a score of 6-0 6-2. A match without history in favor of the blue, fresh from the triumph of the tournament in Rabat and which in Paris reached the quarter-finals in 2020. Now for the 28-year-old Florentine in the second round there is Linette, yesterday surprise winner against the very favorite Jabeur.
Is Naomi Osaka’s first round defeat a surprise? Not really, or not too much, for two reasons: the first is that the Japanese does not love (euphemism) the land, the second is that her opponent, Amanda Anisimova, born in 2001, is one who at 18 had reached the semifinal in Paris, therefore, she is one who knows how to do it on red, and how. Naomi returned to Roland Garros a year after the crisis she had unveiled right in the middle of participating in the French slam, first with an attack on the press (where she accused journalists of causing excessive tension) and then with the admission of suffering from depression. , with the retirement not only from the tournament but also for a good part of the season. The former world number one has returned to the field but without obtaining those extraordinary results of some time ago, and even today, despite a very strong and certainly difficult opponent, she has shown that the past level is still far away. A 7-5 6-4 with a struggling first set and a second set where there was always the feeling that the American had more, as it actually was. What is important, however, is that Naomi is better, as she herself stated in a press conference shortly before the start of the tournament. There is time for competitiveness, and probably the season on American hard courts (her favorite of hers) will give more indications on Osaka’s future.
Anisimova, on the other hand, is slowly climbing the slope: it was and is a promise, and her path would have been faster and more constant, without the death of her father Konstantin, which took place on the eve of the Us Open 2019, for her not only a father but also the coach who had taught her everything. Easy debut that couldn’t be easier for the current world number one and great favorite of the tournament, Iga Swiatek, who got rid of the Ukrainian Tsurenko with a peremptory 6-2 6-0. Petkovic and Petra Kvitova are also ahead while outgoing champion Barbora Krejcikova stops, overtaken in three sets by the 19-year-old French n. 97 to the world Diane Parry.
