Paula Badosa signed this Sunday the first Spanish victory in the 2021 edition of Roland Garros, by imposing itself on the American Lauren davis by 6-2 and 7-6 (3) in 1 hour and 40 minutes.
In line with the good tennis that she has been developing in recent weeks, the 23-year-old Spaniard was forceful in her reunion with a tournament in which in the last edition she made a leap in quality, reaching the round of 16.
This is evidenced by his recent triumph in the Belgrade tournament, which has made him land in Paris with the ambition to do something important.
Propelled to the group of the best 50 of the ranking, Badosa faces this edition of Roland Garros as head of series, number 33, which can make her picture somewhat easier.
To begin with, he got rid of Davis, 86 of the world at 27, who resisted him at the beginning of both sleeves.
In the first, after 2-2, the Spanish played six consecutive games, to sign up for the set and enter the next one with dominance.
Although Davis equaled 2 and the duel was balanced, to be resolved in a playoff game that fell on the side of the Spanish.
His next rival will be the Montenegrin Danka Kovinic, 62 of the world of 26 years, or the French Clara Burel, invited by the organizers.
