On defeating Gauff, Badosa

The beginning was difficult, but she soon began to serve well, according to Badosa.

“For me, finding rhythm entails playing a number of extremely extended points. She has a big, massive serve, so I was trying to find that and return it a little bit more. In the third game of the match, Gauff broke first, but Badosa broke back in the fourth game.

Gauff broke Badosa once more in the sixth game after squandering her maiden break. Through the first eight games, Gauff had a 5-3 advantage, but Badosa showed no signs of giving up as she broke the American back in the tenth game and held two break points in the eleventh game to force a tie-break.

The two players were level at 4-4 in the tie-break until Badosa won the following three points to take the close first round. Badosa won the match in straight sets by breaking Gauff twice in the second set after taking the first set. After (the first set), I believe she became unhappy and had some reservations about my serve, Badosa continued. “I seized that chance and played fairly well.”
