With partial 6-0 and 6-4, the Colombian tennis player Maria Camila Osorio Serrano (71st) fell 6-0 and 6-4 against the Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich (100th) in one hour and 34 minutes of play and said goodbye in the first round of the WTA 1000 of Indian Wells.
After a imprecise first sleeve, the one born in Cúcuta 19 years ago, rebounded in the second, quickly broke down and went 2-0 up. However, the Minsk right-hander, whom she had already faced and defeated last May, when they met in the quarterfinals of the WTA 250 in Belgrade, showed character and recovered the level shown at the beginning of the match. From then on, the right hands and shots won by the powerful former world number 30, a finalist twice in the top circuit, would tip the balance in her favor.
In this way, Osorio Serrano, champion in Bogotá, semifinalist in Charleston and Belgrade, participant in the Tokyo Olympic Games and the first of his nationality to compete in the Californian competition since 2017, when Mariana Duque did it, stretched his losing streak, because he only exceeded his debut in one of the last five tournaments in which he participated.
For her part, the European will face the young British sensation in the next instance Emma Raducanu (22nd), recent US Open champion and 17th best seed in the competition.
Indian wells, which can be seen in its entirety by STAR +, is the last WTA 1000 of the season, so the last candidates for the WTA Finals in Guadalajara, which already have four classified, will finish shaping up.
