Kenin did something impossible at the Australian Open, but the tennis player needs to accept and forget it. After all, the American has repeatedly said that she wants to move on, and is confident in her successful career. It should be noted that Sofia is training under the clear guidance of her father, so the money and fame will not go to her head, and that she will continue to give all 100% in training.
For the first time since the Australian Open title, Sofia Kenin was able to win two matches in a row. We cannot say that the victories of the American tennis player in Lyon are really confident.
In the first round match in two sets, she dealt with Vitalia Diatchenko (6-4, 6-3). After that Kenin had some great difficulties with the Romanian tennis player Cristian (6-7, 7-5, 6-4). In the second set, Cristian led a break, had a setball on her serve, but could not finish the match in her favor.
Dodin returns to the tour after a serious injury and surgery that could put an end to her career. When Oceane returned, she could not find her game and the reason is that the Frenchwoman lost all her rating points and unsuccessfully performed at ITF tournaments for about a year. But this season, the tennis player finally felt confident and returned to the WTA round.
Only one match at a tournament in Lyon was played by Oceane Dodin. She reached the quarterfinals without a game, as an opponent had withdrawn from the tournament before the match.
In the first match against Minella, the French tennis player won in two sets (6-4, 6-4). The key to success was largely the game on her serve, than Dodin in the halls traditionally stands out from the best. She completed 15 aces, never gave her serve.
