This Thursday, Fiona Ferro, 51st player in the world, and Kristina Mladenovic, 61st player in the world, were eliminated in the second round of Roland Garros. There are no more French women in contention.
It’s over for the French. This Thursday, Fiona Ferro, 51st player in the world, was eliminated in the second round of Roland Garros by the American Jennifer Brady, 14th player in the world and seeded No. 13, in three sets (6-4, 2-6, 7-5) and 2h13 of play. In the first set, the two players tied the game for the first five games. At 3-2 in favor of the American, the Frenchwoman then gave up her last three face-offs, while Jennifer Brady lost her last two services. This break ahead of time allowed him to win this first set (6-4). In the second round, the Habs almost broke from the start, but they managed to save this break point against them. Then tied with the 14th player in the world (2-2), Fiona Ferro was able to accelerate and seize the last four games of this set, to tie one round everywhere (6-2). Finally, in the third and final set, neither player won their own face-off, 1-1 to 3-3. With these two breaks everywhere, the two players were no further ahead. Finally, at the best of times, the best ranked of the two then managed to tear off, at 6-5, to win, a third and last time, the service of her opponent, and thus slip away in the third round (7-5) .
Mladenovic was no match
There was no match. This Thursday, the French Kristina Mladenovic, 61st player in the world, lost heavily in the second round of Roland Garros against the Estonian Anett Kontaveit, 31st player in the world and seeded No. 30, in two short innings (6-2 , 6-0) and only 53 minutes of play. In the first round, the Frenchwoman nevertheless obtained two first entry break points, without achieving her ends. After then playing an equal game with her opponent for a day up to 3-2 in favor of the Estonian, the Habs therefore ended up cracking. Indeed, Kristina Mladenovic gave up her last two face-offs, despite two break points saved out of four, but it was Anett Kontaveit who then seized this first round (6-2). The 61st player in the world has therefore never recovered from the end of the first round. After the loss of the last three games of this one, we must add the loss of the six games of the second and last round, synonymous with bicycle wheel, despite, in all, two break points saved out of five. This then gives a scathing defeat (6-2, 6-0).
