No surprises in the other matches of the day: Badosa, Pliskova, Pegula, Collins, Garcia, Cornet and Halep pass the turn
The balance of the blue engaged in the first round of Roland Garros ends with a draw: 2 wins, 2 defeats. Martina Trevisan, who won yesterday, was joined by Camila Giorgi, who regulated Zhang Shuai with some heartache. A first set slipped away as she led 3-1 with five consecutive lost games, and some too many fears for the 31-year-old from Marche. After her, however, Camila started a good comeback, with a double 6-2 to close the match: in the next round she will face Yulia Putintseva.
ko paolini and bronzes
Too bad for Jasmine Paolini, who had started pretty well yesterday against Irina Camelia Begu, winning a first set by returning from 2-4 and saving a chance for a double break, but the rain at the beginning of the third set had stopped everything. Today the blue went very close to a success that would have been really heavy, and there are some regrets, indeed: in the third set, in fact, Jasmine was capable of a truly impressive comeback, not taking advantage of the serve in his favor to close the match and lose the decisive tie break for 10-5. The defeat of Lucia Bronzetti, on the other hand, was much clearer, but the opponent, Jelena Ostapenko, seeded number 13, was on one of those days in which she does not allow replicas. Score 6-1 6-4 for the Latvian, who in any case is one that has also won this tournament.
the other matches
The rest of the day on the women’s draw did not offer any big surprises, and not even such spectacular encounters. There was the debut of the Spanish Paula Badosa, with the number 3 seed who liquidated wild card Fiona Ferro at her debut. Karolina Pliskova also did well, ahead against Tessah Andrianjafitrimo, all easy for Pegula and Collins too. French in ecstasy for the victories of Garcia and Cornet. Also advancing the Romanian Simona Halep, who got the better of Nastasja Schunk.
