Sara Sorribes accurately wins her first US Open match

On the fourth attempt, Sorribes finally managed to advance to the second round at the US Open by beating American Liu (238th). He made only 12 unforced errors.


At the fourth attempt, this Tuesday came the moment that Sara Sorribes had been waiting for since she played her first US Open in 2017. The 23-year-old and 82nd in the world from Castellón finally managed to win a match in the main draw of the American Grand Slam and go to the second round. Her victim, in addition, was a local player, the American Claire Liu (20th and 238th), whom she beat in two sets: 6-2 and 6-4 in 1h: 46. Sara has already won at least one match in each major (this year she did it in Australia) .

Sorribes, who has undergone a remarkable physical change in recent years that adds power to his game and also changed his serve mechanics and the way he takes hits (with a peculiar scream included), completed a brilliant performance in precision, with only 12 unforced errors and few winners (9). He didn't need it because with his remains he managed to break Liu's serve six times. He broke early in the first set and a little further into the set in the second. And he recovered well the three times he lost his serve. With moments of very good tennis, especially intelligent, she withstood the constant increases (up to 45) of her rival, aggressive but failing (50 not forced). Now a coconut awaits her, Belgian Elise Mertens (16th favorite), who easily beat German Siegemund (double 6-2).

Results of the day.
