Caroline Garcia qualified for the quarter-finals of the WTA 1000 in Cincinnati

If we wanted to quibble, we would point to a feverish start, marred by a few errors of impatience, and this new high penalty volley completely missed when it served to win the match at 6-3, 5-3. For the rest, under a brutal sun which had discouraged many fans, Caroline Garcia still produced ultra-offensive tennis of a very high level to afford a ticket to the quarter-finals in Cincinnati, his best result in a WTA 1000 for four years (Montreal 2018).

On the heels of her first two successful rounds against Petra Martic (6-3, 6-3) and Maria Sakkari (7-6, 6-7, 6-1), the 28-year-old Frenchwoman dominated the Belgian Elise Mertens (6-4, 7-5). Broken from the start, the 35th in the world immediately recovered and gradually imposed her game. Mertens time by rushing to the net at the slightest opportunity.

Thanks to this success, Garcia, who will face Emma Raducanu or Jessica Pegula in the quarter-finals, is now almost guaranteed to be seeded at the US Open. If it retains its current momentum, it will look like a serious underdog in New York.
