The Spanish Bolsova shines: from the previous to the 3rd round of a big

After defeating Cirstea, Aliona Bolsova has already won five matches at Roland Garros, three in the previous and two in the main draw. His next opponent, Alexandrova.

Aliona Bolsova extended the dream that began in the previous Roland Garros and that has already led him to the third round of the French Grand Slam. The Spanish Moldovan origin (21 years and 137th in the world) won the Romanian Sorana Cirstea (29 and 84th, although it was 21st) in two tiebrakes (7-6 (5) and 7-6 (3) in 1h: 38) and the rival before whom it will try to extend its feat is the Russian Alexandrova, who won the Australian Stosur (3-6, 6-1 and 6-4) . He has already won five games three in the previous and two in the main draw, and the one he transits was cleared with the loss of Petra Kvitova. That's why she has 111111 choices for Carla Suárez, who in 2008 reached the quarters in Paris as qualifier.

Aliona celebrated her triumph on the verge of tears, jumping for joy and hugging her coaches, Lourdes Domínguez and Ana Alcázar. He had never played in a big and has already passed two rounds, it was not for less. He was about to leave tennis for his studies in the United States, but now he wants to be someone in the circuit, but with the humility and low profile he likes to maintain.

Ant Cirstea showed that he can dominate with his backhand two hands and change speeds and heights with the right. Only cost him to respond to the left of Cirstea, but came to the most important, in the tiebreak of the second set, to achieve a tremendous point that he put egg trump with a pair of volleys wonderful He also showed mental strength when with 5-2 in the first quarter, he had to play a tie break and despite starting from below, he rallied and took advantage. This is his tournament and the Lioness does not set limits.

"Until I finished the last point I did not believe it, I saw it close but it slipped away, I'm euphoric!" , told the Spanish media in Paris . "It's my first Roland Garros and now I'm in the third round, it's incredible, I'm very happy, it's the fruit of all the months of work with my team, now I have to continue," he continued. "I told myself that when you are against the best you have to see the matches as something very long, that you can not come down" , he told about the moment when Cirstea came back from 5-2 in the first set. "On Saturday I have an exam, if I qualify, I'm going to suspend it," he assured with a laugh. "I would have to study, by the way", he joked.
