Svyatek’s trip to the grass field Grand Slam is obviously not as good as her trip to the French Open clay court where she won two championships. She admitted after the game that she still couldn’t find the feeling on the grass, and even felt confused.
“I’ve played more and more aggressively this season, which makes me very comfortable. But here I can’t control the ball, so I can only be a little slower.” Svyatek said helplessly, everything happens on the grass Too fast, and she didn’t know how to adjust when falling behind. “Usually it’s because I have a plan and I know what changes to make, but here I don’t know how to change, I’m confused.”
Nadal, who is also better at red clay, continues to “sail” smoothly on the grassland with his rich experience. The 36-year-old Spaniard sent 27th seed Sonego 6:1, 6:2 and 6:4 in just two hours and five minutes. “This is the best match I’ve played since Wimbledon, a big improvement from before,” Nadal said. “I played more aggressively and surfed a lot.”
The match between Australian star Kyrgios and Greek No. 4 seed Tsitsipas was “very lively”. The chattering Kyrgios tortured Tsitsipas to the point of gaffe. The latter not only hit the ball into the audience to vent his anger, but also Also aimed directly at Kyrgios. Tsitsipas, who finally won the first set, lost 1:3 and sent the latter into the second week of Wimbledon.
