Elizabeth beaten by Begu in two sets. Emma stopped by Garcia, Muguruza (in tears) and Kontaveit also outside
The Wimbledon of the Italian women’s patrol is already over, on the third day. After the disaster of the most anticipated player, Camila Giorgi, the only one left was Elisabetta Cocciaretto, but she too was eliminated. The tennis player from the Marche stopped in front of Irina Camelia Begu, at the end of a match that she did not present as unplayable.
The number 119 in the world did not start as the favorite, against the number 43, but it was thought that she could overturn the prediction, thanks to the beautiful victory against Martina Trevisan in the first round, but it did not go that way. A 6-4 6-4 for Begu who never really struggled, especially on her serve (where she only had to face a break ball), even if the sliding doors would not have been missing, with balls that Cocciaretto could certainly exploit better. Would the economy of the match have changed? Difficult to say: the difference did not seem small, but perhaps more could have been done.
As for the rest of the women’s tournament, great disappointment for the English public comes from the elimination of Emma Raducanu, the baby prodigy already winner of a Grand Slam and national hope. The British tennis player, seeded number 10, surrendered to French Caroline Garcia 6-3 6-3, much more experienced and with a light arm, in a game that has basically never been in the balance. The rather negative period of Raducanu continues, which in a few months she will probably have to deal with a new reality, if she does not change pace. A real disaster also for the finalists of the last Wta Finals, Anett Kontaveit and Garbine Muguruza, the latter winner of Wimbledon. The Estonian, number 2 in seeding, was wiped out 6-4 6-0 by world number 97 Jule Niemeier, unfortunately continuing to show the enormous problems of the last period due to the covid-19 infection suffered at the end of April in Stuttgart. Muguruza, on the other hand, has reached yet another disastrous performance of the last four months. Yesterday he lost the first set 6-4 against Greet Minnen before dark, today her game lasted just 18 minutes, with a terrifying 6-0 immediately. At 5-0 Garbine also let herself go to a very bitter cry. No problem for Karolina Pliskova and Angelique Kerber.
