Another 'animalada' of Sorribes

The Spanish beat one of the most promising young women on the circuit in three sets, the 21-year-old Kazakh Elena Rybakina, and will meet Jabeur in the round of 16.


Neither the heat (28 degrees), nor the humidity (61%) nor the hours on the track (almost two and a half this time) can with the great moment of Sara Sorribes. The Spaniard brilliantly carried out another match resolved in three sets, like the ones she won against Pera (in 2:41) and Brady (2:22), and she did it against another player with a better ranking than her (23rd) and with a huge potential within the circuit, the Kazakh Elena Rybakina: 6-1, 3-6 and 6-2. Now, without fear and with morale through the roof, she will be measured in the second round of the Miami Open, a WTA 1,000 against Tunisian Ons Jabeur, who was able to defeat American Sofia Kenin (6-4, 4-6 and 6-4).

New 'animalada' by Sorribes, who from now on will keep that sanbenito because of what Brady told her after losing to her on Friday: "You're a fucking animal" ("You're a fucking animal"). In the first set, it is not that he was touting Rybakina, it is that he went over him with three of the eight breaks that he added during the game, much merit against an opponent who does not have a bad serve, who hits with a lot of power and in which he must It can be put that it fails too much and it is a tad soft on the head. Quite the opposite of the Castellón woman, stable and secure thanks to an extraordinary physical condition that surprises and surpasses her opponents, who end up dead against her.In addition, each time he hits the ball harder and with more placement and maintains that cut backhand that hurts and allows him to enter later with the forehand. Also, if he has to go up to the net, he does it with the hand of a good doubles player and does not flinch when bad hits come, as happened in a second round in which Rybakina raised his level quite a bit. When it seemed that the inertia of the meeting favored the Kazakh, Sara drove the rest crazy, from the beginning and the beginning. And when he had to serve to win after several missed serves, he did not fail. Big hat and gain of two places in the ranking. It is already the 55th.

Osaka advances without playing and Pliskova falls again

Japanese Naomi Osaka, second seed for the title, also managed to reach the round of 16, who did so without playing her match against Serbian Nina Stojanovic, who announced her retirement due to injury before the match. Osaka will now fight in the quarterfinals against Belgian Elise Mertens, who beat Estonian Anett Kontaveit in three sets (6-2, 0-6 and 6-2) .

Worse it was for Karolina Pliskova. The Czech, sixth favorite, was overtaken by American Jessica Pegula, who beat her in three sets by 6-1, 4-6 and 6-4. Pegula will face the Greek Maria Sakkari in the round of 16, who swept the Russian Liudmila Samsonova (6-1 and 6-0) .
