At the 9th time participating in a Grand Slam tournament, Marketa Vondrousova became the first teen player to reach the Roland Garros final since the achievement of Ana Ivanovic (Serbia) in 2007.
Unclassified female tennis player Vondrousova is continuing to make surprise at Roland Garros this year. In the recent semi-final, despite having to encounter an experienced player rather than Konta of the United Kingdom, Vondrousova still plays extremely well.
She won the hope of the British J.Konta 7-5, 7-6 despite facing 3 points losing the first game.
More impressive when this 19-year-old athlete has not lost any game on the way to the final and her opponent is a very good Australian tennis player A.Barty – 17-year-old “phenomena” A.Anisimova. The final match took place on 9-6.
The best performance of Vondrousova in the past was in the fourth round of the US Open 2018.
The organizers of the tournament received a lot of criticism when the women’s singles semifinal match between Vondrousova and Konta took place on the field of Simonne Mathieu with a capacity of only 5,000 people because the big yards had to hold the remaining semifinals and sell Linking Nadal – Federer. The men’s singles schedule is “stacked” because of the rain a few days before a quarter-finals had to be postponed for 24 hours. Former World No. 1: Mauresmo called the organization of the Vondrousova match – Konta on the small yard was “embarrassing”.
In the final, Vondrousova will encounter Barty, the No. 8 seed of the tournament. In the other semi-final, Barty defeated Anisimova after 3 sets with 6-7, 6-3, 6-3. So this year’s women’s singles final will witness two names that are still quite anonymous in women’s tennis arena.
Just about 2 hours, defending champion R. Naral won R.Federer in 3 white games with the score 6-3, 6-4, 6-2, won the right to return to the final. It was the 24th win for the Spanish star against Federer and was the 22nd consecutive win at Roland Garros.
