María Camila Osorio achieved one of the dreams that she had drawn when she began her professional career. The cucuteña got the ticket to play the main draw at Roland Garros after winning her third-round match of the Qualy.
The Colombian defeated Monica Niculescu with partial 6-3, 4-3 and retirement although she was on track for victory. In the first set, Osorio managed a break on the Romanian’s serve. For the second set, when the eighth game began to play, Niculescu decided to withdraw from the match due to injury and give way to Maria Camila’s celebration.
This is the first time she has managed to advance to the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament since reaching the top flight in women’s tennis. He had already tried in Australia in the last two editions of this tournament that takes place at the beginning of the year.
The last time Colombia had a representation in the women’s singles category at a Grand Slam was in 2018 with Mariana Duque at the Wimbledon tournament.
