Tennis. WTA – Saint-Malo – The Cornet-Ferro derby dominates a very blue day

The day of May 1st was a little “non-working” at WTA 125 in Saint-Malo. Due to rainy weather, only two round of 16 matches could take place. Clara Burel passed between the drops in all respects since the Breton woman rejected three match points against the Turk Zeynep Sonmez. Friday, she will meet the Swiss Céline Naef.

There will be at least one other French woman in the quarter-finals. Indeed, there will be a Nice derby between Alizé Cornet And Fiona Ferro. Future retiree, Alizé stopped the bleeding by dominating the young Astrid Lew Yan Foon. But facing his girlfriend, the level will rise. Fiona – who won their only duel in Lausanne in 2019 – needs to seduce with a view to the distribution of wild cards for Roland-Garros. An invitation to the French Open, Lois Boisson in a dream. And it aligns the performances. In the second round, she will face an Argentinian qualifier: Solana Sierra.

Ponchet aims for Race France wild card

Jessika Ponchet is eyeing the Race France wild card. An accession to the quarter would greatly help the Landaise. To do this, he needs to remove the Colombian Emiliana Arango, an opponent of Les Bleues for the Billie Jean King Cup play-off. On her ropes after her exploit against the Russian Anna Blinkova (No. 2). The last two tricolors on the Saint-Malo courts are Carole Monnet And Chloe Paquet (n°6). They will respectively be opposed to the American Katie Volynets (n°7) and Belarusian Iryna Shymanovic.
