2011 French Open: Caroline Garcia breaks Czech Republic’s Zuzana Ondraskova to reach round two
France’s Caroline Garcia dispatched her Czech opponent Zuzana Ondraskova in the first round encounter at the 2011 French Open on Tuesday.
The Frenchwoman completely blew away unseeded Ondraskova in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 taking one hour and fifteen minutes of match play. Garcia was far better than Ondraskova in most segments of the game and cashed in her opportunities
at the right time.
The Czech pro got her chances in the match but she failed to take advantage of them most of the times. She was donated with seven break chances by her French opponent but she wasted five of them and made things easier for her opponent.
The 17-year-old Garcia converted four out of five break points to win the contest.
Garcia entered the field and started playing very persistently. Her persistent approach paid off splendidly at 3-3 in the opening set as her opponent made seven unforced errors that gave away the world number 188 her chance to
break. The Frenchwoman continued to play tremendously and after a well judged job she hit a smart volley that took her to serve out the set completely. She scored 68 percent of points on her service, 48 percent of points on return and a number of 34 points
in total to clinch the set with a 6-3 score line.
With her effective huge serve and powerful ground strokes, the Frenchwoman entered the second set. The 5-ft 10-in Garcia completely took the advantage of her height and hammered fifteen winners in the set. She scored 13 of 16 points
on her 62 percent first serves whereas her opponent lagged behind with a meager 60 percent. Garcia crafted two break points in the final set while Ondraskova failed to save one. Moreover Garcia scored 81 percent on service game, 44 percent on return and 30
points in total to clinch the final set with a 6-4 score line.
Emerging victorious today, Garcia has improved her year-to-date win loss mark to 10-6 matches and now moves on ahead to face Russian tennis ace, Maria Sharapova who defeated Mirjana Lucic to make it this far. Garcia's opponent,
Sharapova is currently ranked No. seven in the world. A winner of 23 WTA singles title, Sharapova’s best run in 2011 came two weeks earlier in Italy where she tasted the glory of victory at the Rome Masters for the first time in her previous three attempts.
Sharapova is definitely a heavy favourite and is expected to fend off the challenge of an in-form Garcia with her fine court coverage and brilliant shot making.
