Keep warm hand. María Camila Osorio, 19, stretched her unbeaten streak. The recent champion of the Bogotá tournament, last Sunday, advanced to the semifinals in the tournament Charleston WTA 250 and thus it is the first of Colombia to achieve eight victories in a row on the professional circuit in singles.
Invited to her country, the US Open 2019 junior champion made noise again. And for the second week in a row. To the title of Bogotá, his first WTA title, which gave him enormous joy and a lot of diffusion in his country, he now has access to the semifinals on the Charleston clay in the United States.
The player from Cúcuta was winning 6-4 and 1-0 when her opponent, the Danish Clara Tauson, left the court with a leg injury. He had already requested medical time and finally the European decided to leave the contest.
Thus, the brave Osorio, who had just overcome the American Christina McHale in an epic match with two tiebreaks won in the second and third sets, achieved another step forward in the quarterfinal day.
This success allowed Osorio to be the Colombian with the most successes in a row on the professional WTA circuit in singles, with eight, surpassing the mark set by the historic Fabiola Zuluaga, who had achieved seven.
In this way, Osorio, who excelled in his junior stage, was once again in the news on the major league tour. And, far from conforming, he wants more. On Saturday, in the semifinal, she will play Australian Astra Sharma.
In the remaining semifinal, Tunisian Ons Jabeur, the top seed, will play Montenegrin Danka Kovinic, who eliminated third-seeded American Shelby Rogers in the quarterfinals.
