It was a gray day at Roland Garros but more than bright for Rosario Nadia Podoroska. His victory by 6-3 and 6-2 against the Slovak Karolina Schmiedlova they place Rosario in a privileged place for Argentine tennis.
Podoroska will be, from next Monday, a new player Top 100. This had not happened since Paula Ormaechea will occupy a position in this place in September 2014.
Rosario gave women’s tennis the place it deserves. And it has everything to improve and keep improving.
For the first time since 2011 and, precisely in the Bois de Boulogne, that an Argentinean did not reach the second week of a Grand Slam: in that case, it was Gisela Dulko who reached the round of 16 in Paris.
For a place among the eight best of the contest, Podoroska will be measured against the winner of the match they star in the Czech Barbora Krejčíková and the Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova, both out of the top 100.Nadia’s dream at Roland Garros? He is still more than alive.
