At this year’s Australian Open, Alize Cornet (WTA 37) reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam. The 32-year-old Frenchwoman had a chance to achieve such a result at Wimbledon. The 1/8 Finals began two days after Iga Świątek was eliminated. She finished the Polish Women’s Series 37 in a row and won matches. On Monday, the tennis player from Nice had a fierce battle with Ajla Tomljanović (WTA 44). The Australian promotion won Cornet 4:6, 6:4, 6:3 and the match lasted 2 hours and 35 minutes.
There was strength, determination, and intelligence on both sides in the meeting. There were many long and varied exchanges and beautiful net works. In the first set, Tomljanovic approached 3-4 with a score of 1: 4. After a string of twosome achievements, Cornet finally fell prey to her.
In the second match, the French drew 4: 4, but lost two more matches. In the third, Cornet physically weakened and her legs worked worse and worse. She was losing 1:5, but she fought to the end. She got close to 3:5, but the competitor wouldn’t let her do more. In the ninth match, Tomljanovic used the third match ball. The Australian was surprised and touched that she retained the brave French woman.
Cornet scored 23 out of 33 netting points, and Tomljanovic 17 out of 29. The Australian returned the pass seven times, and she herself used nine of her 15 points to net. I sent 26 recent strokes with 34 non-forced errors. Cornet was accused of directly winning 30 balls and 32 fouls. Tomljanovic scored two more points (101-99) and advanced 3-2 on the balance sheet with the French. This was their second match at Wimbledon. Last season, the Australian also won three sets (6:4, 0:6, 6:3).
Cornet’s performance was 65th at the Grand Slam, and 15th at Wimbledon. On grass in Great Britain, she reached the fourth round for the second time (2014). In London, she achieved two victories over the leaders of the ranking. In 2014, she dumped American Serena Williams, and this time she cracked down on Świątek.
It’s her 31st Grand Slam tournament for Tomljanovic and she’s reached the second quarter-final. At Wimbledon last year, Ashleigh Barty lost in the fight for the semi-finals. This time the Australian will play against Casasca Jelena Rybakina.
