Barbora Krejkova (WTA 17), singles and doubles champion at this year’s Roland Garros, competed in the fourth round of Wimbledon on Saturday. Anastasia Sevastova (WTA 56), who reached the semi-finals of the US Open 2018, caused a lot of problems for her, as the Czech won 7:6 (1), 3:6, 7:5 after 2 hours 31 minutes.
In the first set, Krejcikova returned 3:5. There was one breakthrough in the second and third matches. Sevastova 4:2 came out and didn’t concede the advantage. In the deciding edition, the Czech won from 5:5 in two matches and for the first time advanced to Wimbledon 1/8 in one match.
Krejcikova sent 44 final shots and made 57 unforced errors. Sevastova has 27 straight wins and 31 fouls. Both tennis players had four breakthroughs. The Czech team scored two points more than Latvia (110-108). It was their first meeting.

At Roland Garrosi this year, the Czech achieved his first singles victory in a Grand Slam tournament. In doubles he has three such titles in his achievements. She won twice in 2018, in Paris and Wimbledon. Each time she did it with Katerina Sinyakova, whom she could face on Monday. However, her marital partner surrendered to Ashleigh Barty.
Cory Gauff (WTA 23) won 6:3, 6:3 with Kaja Jovan (WTA 102). In 65 minutes, the American scored 23 out of 33 points with her first pass. You saved four out of six break points and used five of your seven breakout chances. She finished the meeting with 21 final hits and 17 unforced errors. Slovenia scored 17 straight wins and 21 fouls.
Gauff equaled her best London result of the 2019 season when, at 15 and three months old, she qualified for Wimbledon’s main event as the youngest female tennis player of the Open Era. In the first round, she then eliminated Venus Williams, the oldest participant in the event. Gauff thus became the youngest Wimbledon winner since Jennifer Capriati (1991). In the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for the second time, after Roland Garros this year, he will face Angelica Kerber on Monday.
