Twenty-five years after Jana Novotna, the flag of the Czech Republic returns to the top four on the Roland Garros women’s draw. Barbora Krejcikova breaks Coco Gauff’s dreams with a hysterical 7-6 (4) 6-3. The American star does not take advantage of a break advantage on two occasions during the first set, she misses a two set point (one at 5-4 and one at 6-5) and does not even take advantage of a 6-4 situation in the jeu decisif.
Krejcikova, who instead takes advantage of the first opportunity available, thanks to the circumstances and an incredible yield in response, manages to escape rather easily at 5-0. Her and her to secure three consecutive match points in the next game.
Obviously not responsible for the scoring situation, the seventeen-year-old American lets her arm go completely and recovers up to 3-5. In the final game, however, she fails to move the zero from the points box. For the Czech, at least a semifinalist also in the doubles draw, it will be her fifth career semifinal in the WTA Tour. The balance of three wins and one defeat.
