Serena passes over Nara and earns whole

The American, who did not arrive as one of the main favorites because of her limited filming in recent months, begins to enter the pools. Kenin, his next rival.


He did not arrive as one of the main favorites, with only one game played, at the 1000 Masters in Rome, since he suffered an injury to his left knee in Miami. But you always have to take it into account, especially when we talk about Grand Slams. The 23 that show the showcases of Serena Williams, and in the third round of Roland Garros after eliminating the Japanese Kurumi Nara on Thursday by 6-3 and 6-2, they grant that deference.

If Diatchenko, in its premiere, gave up a set before unseating the Russian with a 6-1 and 6-0 then this time it went over the 238 world in an hour and 8 minutes. Serena is clearing the x of her equation, the unknown about her possible performance in a field that is not the most fertile for her (here she has conquered 'only' 3 of her 23 big ones) but that she has not resisted and after more than two years of swings between her motherhood and various physical problems. Nobody dares to discard it and less if it starts crushing rivals as in this occasion, with forcefulness (36 hits won by 21 unforced errors), mobility (9 of 11 successful rises to the network) and a relentless service (73% of first and 10 aces). His next rival will be Sofia Kenin, compatriot and a more demanding test (it is the 35th of the WTA). Then you can see if you really are to aspire to your room wound or what these days are bullets of blank.
