Sorribes stumbles upon Raducanu, the British tennis sensation

Sara Sorribes took a relative disappointment this Saturday at the US Open, because the defeat against Emma Raducanu was within the possibilities, since this young woman who at only 18 years old who has become the great sensation of British tennis had just reached the round of 16 at Wimbledon. What perhaps did not enter into the calculations of the Spanish, as she has been playing in 2021, her best season, was to fit almost two donuts. In the end, he saved honor in extremis, but the 6-0 and 6-1 in 69 minutes Against the 150th in the world, which also had to go through the previous one and has already played six games, it is a tough result.

Definitely, this is being the Grand Slam of the young people. Raducanu is the third 18-year-old tennis player to enter the fourth round of the New York tournament after Carlos Alcaraz and Canadian Leylah Fernandez. On Friday, a compatriot of this girl who eliminated Naomi Osaka, Felix Auger-Aliassime, who is 21 years old, also qualified. From the same country and the same age, Bianca Andreescu passed. Iga Swiatek, who is 20, also has options to pass, as does Varvara Gracheva, another 20. And Shapovalov (22), Brooksby (20) and Sinner (20) try.

Sara got a shower (23 winners in 13 games) and her usual plan did not work, because Raducanu also responded to her in the long exchanges, backhand cut to backhand cut and did not miss much (16 unforced errors). With the serve he showed no cracks and did not grant a single break option. Simply It was much better than the Castellón, who should not be discouraged because of a bad day against a very good rival, because it already has a place among the 40 best in the world. And watch out for Emma. Her next opponent could be number one, Ashleigh Barty, with a pattern similar to that of Sorribes, although with better service. If the Australian beats Shelby Rogers.

Results, table and schedules.
