Sofia Kenin finished quickly at the WTA 1000 Championships in Indian Wells. The 2020 US Australian Open champion has not matched up with Beatrice Haddad-Maia. The confrontation between Caroline Garcia and Dajana Gastremska was an interesting story.

This season is going poorly for Sofia Kenin (WTA 130). She started in the quarter-finals in Adelaide, but withdrew from the following four tournaments in the first round, including the Australian Open. She was 12th in the standings in January and is now outside the top 100. There is a bad streak going on at Indian Wells. The American tennis player lost 3:6, 5:7 with Beatrice Haddad Maya (Tennis Association 61).

In the second set, the 2020 Australian Open champion missed the lead with a score of 2-0. In a match of one hour and 46 minutes, the fourth racket of the globe committed 11 double faults. Blacksmith Maya used six out of 17 break points. The Brazilian raised the budget for his meetings with Kenin to 3-0. Before that, they met in 2014 (ITF in Captiva Island) and 2017 (Qualifiers in Mallorca). Another contender for Mai Haddad will be Dinka Clara Towson.

Dajana Gastremska (WTA 103) reached the final in Lyon last week. In Indian Wells, a Ukrainian woman had an incredible fight with Caroline Garcia (WTA 66). The tennis player from Odessa lost 4: 6, 7: 6 (8), 5: 7. Jastremska rose from 4: 6, 1: 3. In the tiebreaker of the second set, she defended two identical balls. In the third inning, she was leading 4:2, but the French crushed her resistance.

In the match that lasted two hours and 27 minutes, Jastremska sent 15 aces and Garcia fired 12. The French defended eight out of 10 break points and substituted four out of nine chances. She scored five more points (115-110) and beat the Ukrainian for the first time. Jastremska won twice in 2019 (final in Strasbourg, first round in Beijing). In the second round, Garcia will meet Britain’s Emma Radocano, the US Open champion.

Ann Lee (WTA 64) defended two identical balls in the 12th game of the second set and won 1:6, 7:6 (5), 6:0 with Madison Pringle (WTA 56). Danka Kovinic (WTA 71) won 7:5, 7:5 by Jill Tishman (Ten 37). In the second set, the Montenegrin representative returned from 3:5. In the match that lasted two hours and three minutes, she used six of his 11 break points.
