Nadia Podoroska (42nd), semi-finalist at Roland Garros 2020, was eliminated in the first round of the French Open at the hands of Belinda Bencic (11th). The victory was taken by the Swiss with partials of 6-0 and 6-3 to get into the next instance of the tournament.
The tenth seed was completely dominant in the first set. With a spectacular level, accompanied by 11 winners and only four unforced errors, unlike the rosarina who had zero and ten respectively, took advantage of the three break chances he had and closed the sleeve in zero.
In the second set Podoroska’s performance grew. He had the possibility of taking the serve of the European and played as equals. However, mistakes in key moments played a trick on him. Bencic was forceful and secured the victory in Paris to take the victory and the pass to the second round of the tournament. There you will see the faces with the winner of the duel between the Russian Daria Kasatkina (37 °) y Misaki Doi (79 °).
Thus, Argentina left very quickly, who last year gave the great surprise, surpassing the qualifying phase and reaching the semifinals. In that instance, she had been surpassed by the Polish Iga Swiatek, then champion of her only Grand Slam for now.
Installed in the Top 50 of the WTA, being No. 42, Podoroska suffered a terrible blow in her favorite tournament. The draw was not good for her and on the court she was clearly outmatched by the European.
