Iga Swiatek and Sofia Kenin, 22 and 19 years-olds, are the finalists of the women's singles at Roland Garros 2020. An unprecedented final, a new winner of the Parisian Slam, and a very young queen. Sofia wants her second Slam title after the Australian Open 2020, Iga wants to become one of the new stars of the WTA Tour.
An open final, hopefully fun. At the expense of the expert Petra Kvitova and the outsder Nadia Podoroska. Tomorrow the men's singles semifinals: Novak Djokovci vs Stefanos Tsitsipas and Rafael Nadal vs Diego Schwartzman. About Swiatek.
The young tennis player has as an idol the Spanish champion and legend on the clay courts of Roland Garros Rafael Nadal, also still fighting for the conquest of the tournament, the 13th in his case. Here is an anecdote from a few days ago.
After the victory against Martina Trevisan, the tennis player spoke like this at the press conference: "Yesterday I had to do my thing but I couldn't resist and I saw about 30 minutes of her game, I couldn't go beyond.
He's my favorite tennis player, I love watching the his meetings. I wish him the best in this tournament and I hope he can win Roland Garros for the umpteenth time." Pablo Carreno was not very satisfied with Novak Djokovic's behavior in the quarter-finals.
In a press conference, he said on the Serb: "His injury? It's normal isn't it? He always does the same thing and in recent years he always shows problems when he struggles on the pitch. Sometimes he asks for a medical timeout in times of difficulty.
I don't know, maybe it's his way of putting pressure on his opponents. In the end he keeps playing at the same level and I don't know if he really suffers or if it's his mental issue. Maybe ask him."
The best and the worst from the Parisian Slam
Serena Williams has always been one of the most committed sportswomen to raise awareness of extremely important issues and in a recent interview with Vogue she wanted to launch a very important message by telling her story.
She said: "I like who I am and how I am. I love to represent the beautiful black women in the world. Now we have a voice and technology plays an important part. Let's see what has been hidden from us for years; the ones that we often face.
This has been happening for years. People could not film before with their mobile phones. A lot of white people, at the end of May, wrote to me. They said: I'm sorry for everything you've had to go through. the question with different eyes.
Don't understand, because I don't think others can understand." Here's how much time the men's singles semifinalists spent on the court during the French Open. Rafael Nadal, so far only on the field for 10 hours in the 5 games played so far.
After Nadal, the player who has spent less time on the pitch is Stefanos Tsitsipas. Novak Djokovic spent a little more time on the pitch while the tennis player who spent the most time on the pitch was the Argentine Schwartzman, star of the victory in the quarter-final marathon against Dominic Thiem and on the pitch for 13 hours and 34 minutes.
The Argentine certainly arrives as the tennis player with the most effort in this match and the experts are curious to see if he will suffer from the fatigue in the semifinal match against Rafa Nadal who remained on the field about four hours less.
