Coco Gauff, the 17-year-old American tennis sensation, got to know her match at the French Open on Wednesday. The phenomenon angered unclassified Barbora Krejcikova 7-6 (6), 6-3 in the quarterfinals, ending the race played at Roland Garros. Gauff became the youngest player to reach the quarterfinals of the French Open since 2006.
Krejcikova had to start again when Gauff scored the 3-0 goal. During the match Gauffen made 41 unforeseen errors and seven double errors contributed to the return.
Gauff scored a total of five points throughout his debut, but was unable to become one of them. On the other hand, Krejcikova managed to win the initial set by scoring the last four points of the tie. He then scored 15 points in a row and maintained a 5-0 lead in the second set.
The win was a big one for Krejcikova, as she won two Grand Slam doubles titles with Katerina Sinjakova, but never made it past the fourth round as a solo competitor.
“Everyone labeled me“ Yeah, you play in pairs. You’re a doubles specialist. ”But I never thought I wanted to be a doubles specialist,” Krejcikova said after the win. According to ESPN. “So I was working hard all the time. I wanted to play alone. It was really frustrating that I wasn’t able to get there. But I always felt … sooner or later, getting there.”
Krejcikova is currently ranked 33rd in the world and has won the last 10 matches in the individual competition. In the semifinals, Maria Sakkari will now face the No. 17 seed.
