? Ref_src = twsrc%5etfw "> August 18, 2022 Garcia virtually 31st
Breakée managed to equalize at 3-3, then she succeeded in the break at the best time, at 5-4. On her momentum, she rolled out in the second to lead 4-1, then 5-2, and nothing seemed Stop it. But after having shown itself more and more threatening on the service of "Caro", Mertens ended up the 5-3 Breaker on its sixth occasion of the set. She obtained two new Break balls at 5-5, but Garcia ended up getting out of his torpor (maybe a hot stroke?), almost broke his racket, and won the game to lead 6-5. Conclude, and she got there, to afford this great victory.
a success that allows her to go virtually to the 31st rank in the world, which means that if Shuai Zhang and Ajla Tomljanovic shine in this You weekend in Ohio, she will be seeded at the US Open. X1 Who would have predicted it when she started Roland-Garros by being 79th in the world? To ensure its seeded status, the easiest way will be to beat Jessica Pegula (2-1 for the American in the confrontations) or Emma Raducanu (1-1) on Friday. Which no longer seems impossible for Lyonnaise. X1
