The clash of titans in the semifinals of the WTA 1000 in Canada left an image as peculiar as strange and it is that the American tennis player and number seven in the world, in her match against Simona Halep (number 15 in the WTA), called her rival “passages” between point and point. This occurred in the final stretch of a crash that would end taking the Romanian in three sets (2-6, 6-3, 6-4) after turning the match around in which Jessica Pegula started much better than Halep.
It is true that the 30-year-old Romanian player is a very hard nut to crack both because of her experience and seniority and because of the tennis she plays, getting to drive her rivals crazy more than once. Without a doubt, this fact will not be forgotten since the cameras ‘hunted’ the American how she pronounced those words to her on two occasions: “She is a pushing, sh’s such a pusher”, which can be translated into Spanish as “pasabolas”.
We’ll see how this story ends whether or not you will have reactions from the Romanian tennis player, who will face another final tonight, which could mean his second title of the year against the Brazilian Haddad Maia, in what has been a great tournament for both tennis players.
