Podoroska continues to make history at Roland Garros and is in the semifinals

In a triumph that will remain in the history of Argentine tennis, Nadia Podorska defeated Elina Svitolina 6-2 and 6-4 and is in the semifinals of the Parisian Open.


The history of Argentine tennis was written at the Philippe Chatrier. Nadia Podorska demonstrated a resounding superiority and decisively eliminated the number 5 of the world ranking, Elina Svitolina 6-2 and 6-4 to enter the semi-finals of Roland Garros for the first time. An Argentine tennis player since Paola Suárez in 2004 has not achieved it.It was a dreamed start for Nadia Podoroska, who remained firm on the court against the world number 5, with winning shots and very few unforced errors, Nadia managed to unbalance her rival and with 4 breaks in 4 opportunities, she managed to surprise with a resounding 6-2, marking his superiority in all phases of the game.

The second set, everything depended on what the Rosario tennis player does, with forceful tennis, deep blows, surprise drops, she had Svitolina before the ropes. Only Podoroska's mistakes could get the best seed left in the tournament. And after six consecutive breaks, Nadia held her serve to return 5-4 and once again broke her rival in a cardiac final to get to the Semifinals, a memorable day for her and for national tennis.

Podoroska wrote history, after 16 years, an Argentine tennis player managed to reach the semifinals of the Grand Slam, when Paola Suárez did it at the 2004 Parisian Open. In addition, she is the first tennis player at Roland Garros to reach the semifinals since qualifying. And now the opportunity to reach the final will be against the Polish Iga Swiatek (54th in the world) who beat the Italian Martina Trevisan (159th in the world), 6-3 and 6-1. Nadia's dream is still intact, and one more chance to continue writing history, too.
