Roland Garros, Giorgi greets Paris, Kasatkina passes in two sets

Camila Giorgi’s race ends in the round of 16, ousted 6-2 6-2 by an excellent Daria Kasatkina. The blue does not thus reach Martina Trevisan in the quarter-finals. The match was more closely fought than the score suggests, the blue’s performance was decent, but it failed in the crucial moments of the match, missing several opportunities to at least try to make the score more balanced.

The match report

Daria Kasatkina is a player who knows how to perform very well on clay, varies the game and is very athletically prepared. He had already shown it in 2018 right here, when he slipped Sakkari and Wozniacki one after the other before surrendering in the quarterfinals, or, without going back in time, to Rome, where last week he took the semifinal by beating Badosa. It owns a very precise backhand slice, a rare quality in the women’s circuit, and exploits the pitch in all its three-dimensionality through a very clever use of rotations, especially with kick and straight serve in the top. She had already crossed the racket with Camila Giorgi in Lyon, just before the pandemic put the tour on hold, and even on the fast indoor it was the Russian who prevailed in the third set.

The first stages of the match confirm the tactical plot that was to be expected. Giorgi pushes hard as she knows how, the Russian tries to push her back by raising the trajectories and then move it with the many solutions available: back, tight cross, short ball … The blue is ravenous in attacking the Russian second-handers, especially from the left when he can get on top with the two-handed backhand, but by hook and by crook Kasatkina always manages to get away with the advantages by canceling all three break points allowed. From the possible 3-3 you get to 6-2 in an instant, in a first partial of a very high level.

Giorgi’s “miraculous” response to the Kasatkina service

In the second set the blue wins a very close first game, it could give her confidence, but the Russian doesn’t let go and continues to play her game with great effectiveness and conviction. However, the Marche has three other break points available and in particular two in the fourth game, the one that definitively directs the game. The high and charged trajectories of Kasatkina continue to send her out of time, and heavily affects a paltry 21% of points won on the second. The Russian does not attack immediately like Giorgi, but she always finds depth, angles. She often hits with the counterattack, she also comes to take some points on the net. Really a great game his, net of Giorgi’s errors. For her in the quarter-finals there will be the winner between Keys and Kudermetova. Also for her, who raised the junior trophy in Paris in 2014, this Roland Garros in which many series have fallen represents a huge opportunity.
