The French have never defeated Alison Riske in three encounters. But for a few weeks, Caroline Garcia found a tennis that allowed her to climb to 4e World ranked in 2018, and she made a short stint with the American, at 1 hour 22, even if it took quite a bit of liberation. In a winning comeback, she completed the first set by achieving the only game of the set.

“Alison is a very tough player, a fighter, and moves a lot. I had to be very aggressive. The first set was tight, it wasn’t great tennis, I had to control my emotions.

She will try to do better on Tuesday against American Coco Gauff (12 .).e), who reached the final at the last Roland Garros tournament, to assert herself as a serious contender for the final crown.

frustrating death

French Corentin Moutier, during the US Open, September 4, 2022, in New York (USA).

Lyonnaise will be the only French representative in the quarter-finals, because shortly before qualifying Corentin Moutet (drafted from qualifications) fell to Norway’s Casper Ruud (5e) 6-1, 6-2, 6-7 (4/7), 6-2.

The 23-year-old Frenchman was very nervous and a bit lost in the enormity of Arthur Ashe, but not yet filled with 23,800 spectators a day, he missed his schedule during the first two sets, and made a lot of unintended errors.

Frustration soon overcame him. This manifested itself at first in a rather unusual way, when he did a series of push-ups, as if he was punishing himself – and perhaps re-motivating himself – after losing a point at the start of the second set. The funny thing is that he sent, angrily, two consecutive balls in quick succession to the stands, just before losing the round, and logically earned a penalty point, having received a warning a little earlier for the same offence.

There were better in the third group. Led by 4-2, the French finally started, broke and then pushed Rudd into the decider. A tie break during which he regained his stability, also taking advantage of the fever of his opponent, the owner of the double fault in the set point.

Rudd then managed to regain control of the match by taking Mutet’s serve to lead 3-1, not without immediately having to erase two break points. The advantage is that he knew how to keep it strong afterwards.

Rank 112e Before the New York Major, Corentin Moutet should get thirty spots. Not enough to overcome the bitter taste of defeat. ” I can play better than that, I can be better and I have to be better if I want to win more games. So there is a lot of work ahead.” did he say.

He will face his opponent, who reached the quarter-finals for the first time at Flushing Meadows, Italian Matteo Berrettini (14 .).e), victorious in a big confrontation against Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (39 .).e).
