So far came the illusion of continuing to break records. María Camila Osorio, 19, could not beat Astra Sharma in the second semifinal of the Charleston WTA 250 after falling in straight sets 7-6 (5) and 6-1 and said goodbye in the United States.
The 135th in the world had an even start against the Australian, who managed to prevail in the tiebreak and took a tight first set. Already in the second set, the difference increased: Sharma increased the break opportunities and most took advantage of them.
Notably Osorio came from reaping eight consecutive victories, the first Colombian tennis player to reach that mark on the professional singles circuit.. He had displaced the historic Fabiola Zuluaga, who had gotten seven.
Anyway and regardless of this defeat, the great moment that he is going through is confirmed. To the title of Bogotá, his first in the WTA, is now added the semifinals obtained on the Charleston clay.
For its part, Sharma will play the final against Ons Jabeur, who has just defeated Danka Kovinic 6-3 and 6-0 in an hour and a half of play.
