Hard farewell. María Camila Osorio Serrano (No. 80 in the world) could resist little before the great high-level present of the Tunisian Ons Jabeur, No. 21 in the world and seed No. 20 in the fourth and final Grand Slam of 2021. In the second round, he lost 6-0 and 6-1 in just 53 minutes in New York.
The right-hander from Cúcuta, junior champion of the 2019 United States Open, played for the first time in her career among the majors in this Major and was looking to surprise, but was far behind the established Jabeur. “It was a very special comeback,” Osorio said after the debut, but this Wednesday he had a hard time on the hard court at Flushing Meados.
The 19-year-old was able to do little from the bottom against Jabeur, who had just reached the quarter-finals on the grass at Wimbledon, thanks to her aggressive play, combined with precise attacks on the net.
For this reason, Jabeur’s present was a lot for Osorio, who had just played his best Grand Slam, as he entered the third round at Wimbledon. She had debuted in a professional Major just in the previous one, on the clay of Roland Garros, but there she fell in the first round.
Osorio wanted to be the first Colombian to enter the third round of the US Open in six years, since Mariana Duque Marino did it in 2015. She will have to wait for another opportunity and she will have many rematches, since she has not yet turned 20 and has already been inserted in 2021 on the big circuit.
Now the Colombian will try to return in good shape after passing through New York, in a particular championship for her for the youth title achieved two years ago.
