Nadia Podoroska (37th) fell on her US Open debut to Belgian Greet Minnen (104th, lucky loser) 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 in more than two hours of action and could not get the first win of his career at Flushing Meadows. In turn, it was her fourth loss of the season against a player who is not among the top 100 in the world.
The first set fue irregular on the part of both, but the Belgian was more determined when it came to imposing her pace of play: she reversed her forehand and with very flat shots she dominated Rosario, who ended up yielding 6-4. However, the Peque would not give the arm to third and in the next set he would find his best form. He increased the percentage of points won with the first serve and found gaps on the backhand side of his rival. The superiority was clear and was seen on the scoreboard, a convincing 6-1.
In the decisive, where managing pressure was paramount, the lucky loser showed no cracks in her serve games (1/1 in breaks against). A single break was enough to take the game, hit a great hit and meet the Russian Liudmila Samsonova in the next instance.
Rosario, who this Tuesday made 37 unforced errors, does not completely close its participation in New York; He will play the mixed double with the Argentine Máximo González.
