Paula Badosa crashes into her wall in New York

Paula Badosa crashes into her wall in New York

Paula Badosa crashed into his US Open second-round wall. He fails to make it to the third heat in his hometown of New York. To the hint of anxiety to come back in a complicated summer and take a step forward in the last Grand Slam of the season was added the triggering factor of her goodbye, the inspiration and forcefulness of the rival, the Croatian Petra Martin.

The Balkan, 31 years old and No. 34 in the world, will seek her third participation in the round of 16 against the Belarusian Victoria Azarenka after beating the Spanish, 24 years old and No. 4, by 6-7 (5), 6-1 and 6-2 in 2h.05′.

And if the Croatian enjoyed a successful day, the Spanish suffered. She wants to respond to her current star status on the WTA Tour, she demands a lot of herself. So much so when she doesn’t forgive herself for her mistakes, unintentionally easing her path to defeat.

He was aware of Martic’s demands, whom he beat in Cincinnati 2021 tracing five ‘match’ balls, appearing on the court very active and focused. He saved four break points, the first with an excellent and complicated lob, in the ninth game. A sign of resistance that was rewarded. He took the ‘tiebrak’ 7-5.

An hour of great balance. Badosa lowered the piston, and in an instant he saw himself with a 1-6 from a merciless Martic with the weaknesses of others. Begur’s gave too much advantage, it consolidated the good feelings that the opponent already had.

Calmer, the Croatian traced back the six ‘break’ balls against during the match. She bordered on perfection with the varied game of hers. She annihilated any reaction attempt of a Badosa who paid for the lack of results of the two WTA 1000 previous to this event. Morale is more fragile when things don’t go as one would like.

He fought more than the score of the last set can say. With 1-3 he had two points for 2-3. They were denied by Martic, imperial with the service (10 ‘aces’). The Catalan rebelled against the ‘match-ball’ with 1-5. She coped with it successfully (2-5). Just after two hours of the game, Martic passed sentence. An outstanding match unfortunately for Badosa, flustered by the opponent’s deployment and his own urgencies, since a lot is asked for in any circumstance.
