Halep wins and the fall of Osaka facilitates the defense of his title

Halep beat Tsurenko (6-2 and 6-1 in 55 ') and is still likely to be the first to repeat the title since Henin in 2007. Number one, Osaka, fell to Siniakova (6-4 and 6-2) .


For the fast track and with a security that scares, Simona Halep dispatched her rival in the third round of Roland Garros, a Lesia Tsurenko that could barely enjoy 55 minutes on track before losing by a blunt 6-1 and 6-2 . The Romanian advances steadily in her goal of being the first woman to repeat the title since the Belgian Justin Henin did it twice between 2005 and 2007. In regards to all the Grand Slams, the last one that achieved it was Serena Williams in Wimbledon 2016.

Halep balanced the balance of winning hits and unforced errors (9 and 14) to complete a safe and neat match. He did not have to do much more against the Ukrainian, who doubled him in rulings (32). With four breaks in each set, the world number 3 won without problems and will be with the Puerto Rican Puig, who beat the young Polish 18-year-old Swiatek by 0-6, 6-3 and 6-3. It is the first Puig moves to eighth in Paris.

A few hours later, at Suzanne Lenglen, Halep's road to the trophy was paved a little more thanks to the defeat of the world number one, Naomi Osaka, before the Czech Katerina Siniakova (23 years and 42nd of the world). The Japanese, who had already shown signs of weakness in the previous games in which she had to come back against Schmiedlova and Azarenka, lost more easily than expected: 6-4 and 6-2 in 77 minutes. Siniakova had tried twice win a ranking leader and finally achieved it, with surgical precision work (13 errors). Osaka, in its attempt to come back again, shot its failures (38) and still can not pass the third round in Paris. However, he will continue on the throne until Wimbledon.

Keys suffers to beat Blinkova

Mayison Keys, 14th favorite, won the Russian Blinkova, one of the two previous players who reached the third round (the other one is the Spanish Bolsova ) with more problems than expected. The American won by 6-3, 6-7 (5) and 6-4 in 1h: 54 of competed encounter that was about to win with a match ball in the second set, when she came out with 6-5 in her favor.
