At her premiere in Paris, Tereza Smitkova succeeded to beat Taylor Townsend in an hour and 12 minutes 6: 3, 6: 4. Jiří Veselý, who defeated Leonardo Mayer from Argentina 6: 3, 6: 7, 3: 6, 7: 5, 2: 6, was not able to make a big battle in the first round. Span>
Andrea Hlaváčková did not expect Serena Williams to be world leader.She has played for the second time in her career and this time much more balanced than the US Open 2012, when she did not even play. In Paris, Hlaváčková won its first game in the first set of 0: 3 in the first set and eventually lost 2: 6 and 3: 6.
For the third time in the Grand Slam tournament over the first round, Jiří Veselý. Twenty-one-year-old tennis player who fought at the US Open this year at the Australian Open last four hours today, fought Leonard Mayer, but in the end, Argentina’s 26th-placed player succumbed 6: 3, 6: 7, 3: 6, 5 and 2: 6.
Kvitova was worried but stepped up
“It was very tight and it was a challenging match but I knew it because the beginnings of the tournaments are always hard for me “Fortunately, that’s good,” Kvitova said on the court.In the match she lost six servings, made 47 unforgivable mistakes, and even won fewer balls than her opponent, but the win was ultimately eroded.
In the first set Kvitova turned from 2: 4 to 6: 4. In the second, she was too mistaken, but in the third set she always went first. Twice she had come to him, but not for the third time.
“There was a lot of nerves and it’s important to relax,” said the winner of this year’s Sydney and Madrid tournaments, wondering what he was going to do on Wednesday. In the next match, in which he is in Spain for the first time in Silvio Soler’s career, he wants to improve. “I think I have to do everything,” said Kvitova.
Smitkova, who started a grandslam career last year in Wimbledon with a surprising participation in the eight-finals, won at least one round on the Australian Open in January.It was only the US Open last fall after the first match. Against a year younger Townsend, who defended last year’s third round in Paris, she managed a duel with an overview and rewarded the Americans for a loss from a previous duel last year.In the second set, despite losing 4: 1, another chance has not been offered to the opponent. “I have to say that I was in control, I expected it worse, but I did not feel much better and I did it,” Smitkova said.
The nine-time champion Roland Garros Rafael Nadal has successfully mastered the first obstacle on his Favorite clay tournament. A Spanish tennis player knocked out the eighteen-year-old Frenchman Quentin Halyse in three sets, a remarkable balance at Paris Grandslam improved to 67: 1, but he was playing his blade, the strongest weapon.
I’m trying to work on it, not as stable as it used to be in the past. The punches are generally not so consistent, but it’s in tennis: it’s time to handle hard times, “Nadal told reporters after the 6: 3, 6: 3 and 6: 4 winning streak.
Nicolas Almagro, who is the only Nadal winner on Roland Garros, remains Robin Söderling from the tournament’s eight-finals in 2009.
The role of the main favorite after Nadal has taken over the world leader Novak Djokovic also managed the first round without any problems, and Finnish veteran Jarkko Nieminen, Serbian tennis player, defeated 6: 2, 7: 5, 6: 2 and set off for completing career Grandslam.Djokovic did not have the title in Paris twice.
On the other hand, the sixth Eugenie Bouchard was in the start of the tournament. The Canadian did not end up worrying and after defeating Kristina Mladenovic twice, 4: 6 is not the last semifinals.
