Badosa regains her smile

The Spanish, who reappeared in competition after leaving the Tokyo Games due to heat stroke, gave a remarkable version. It will be measured with Marino or Keys.


Paula Badosa regains her smile on a tennis court. The Spanish born in New York reappeared in competition in the WTA 1,000 in Canada after suffering a heat stroke in Tokyo that forced her to leave the Olympic Games, when only a victory separated her from the fight for the medals. In Montreal, Badosa proved to have overcome that emotional blow with a remarkable version of her tennis that gave her the victory against the Swiss Vitkorija Golubic (47th): 6-2 and 6-3 in 91 minutes of the match.

The wide score by which Paula prevailed, does not fully reflect what was disputed in a match that had long games, with alternatives for both tennis players beyond the 'deuce'. Among the readings left by the duel, the Catalan should take good note of a service with which she committed five double faults and added a discreet 59% of points won with first aces. In the rest he cemented his victory, after a partial of four games in the first set (4-1) with which he recovered from an initial break. The second round was more even, but Paula pressed the accelerator after 2-2 to add a 4-1 partial with which she managed to finalize her debut in the Canadian tournament.

With the momentum of victory, but with some doubts to clear in his game, Javier Martí's pupil will face next Wednesday in the second round with the winner of the duel between Madison Keys (26th) and the local player, with wildcard status , Rebecca Marino (220º) .
