Kenin leaves France without Ferro, his last hope

The American Kenin came back against the French Ferro and will face the winner of the duel between Jabeur and Collins, which is postponed due to the rain to this Tuesday.


For a few moments, France dreamed of having one of its tennis players, Fiona Ferro, in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros. But Sofia Kenin came back and left the local fans without their last hope in the singles tables of the tournament (they have Kiki Mladenovic in doubles, a partner of the Hungarian Timea Babos). The American, this year's Australian Open champion, won 2-6, 6-2 and 6-1 and will face the winner of the duel between Tunisian Ons Jabeur and American Danielle Collins, which was to be played at Suzanne Lenglen and was postponed to Tuesday at the Chatrier because of the rain.

Kenin started with a break at the start, but after he lost ground to a rival who had 18 wins in a row between ITF and WTA tournaments and who made such an effort to win the first set that he paid it in the next two. Kenin was used aggressively (39 winners) and turned the score around while Ferro ran out of gas, despite the tireless encouragement of the thousand spectators in the center.
