Offbeat Tennis - Billie Jean King Cup: Cornet Rate Two Match Balls and Bows against Paolini
How Good Can Carlos Alcaraz Get?
In our latest mailbag, we look at John Isner's doubles success and the proliferation of sports betting in tennis. Hey everyone….a post-Miami Mailbag….Lots of questions and remarks about Miami. Carlos Alcaraz, of course, won the men’s title, beating Casper Ruud in the final. That Alcaraz possesses vast potential has been an open secret for years. That he is realizing this bottomless potential still a month shy of turning 19, well, that is remarkable. I liken this to Nadal in 2005 insofar as it feels like an exercise in glimpsing the future. The Alcaraz game is complete. His work ethic is complete.
Italy leads 1-0 against France in Billie Jean Cup after victory in three sets of Jasmine Paolini against Alizé Cornet, who has had two game bullets at the end of the third round.
It's bad party for the French team of Billie Jean King Cup in Sardinia! The blue are conducted 1-0 by Italy after the defeat of Alizé Cornet against Jasmine Paolini in the first game, on the hard short of Alghero. The Niçoise (34th) will be able to feed large regrets because it had the match in hand in the third set and even procured two game bullets, before bowing 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 in 2h17 . The French No. 1 started the match by leading 4-0 with only six lost points, and then held to pocket on the score of 6-2. She chained with a second set entrance break, but the 26-year-old Italian (48th) was suddenly awakened to win six games in a row and thus equalize a sleeve everywhere. Everything has played in the third, where Cornet thought may have done the hardest by leading 4-2. But Paolini has shown in the stride, before saving two game bullets at 5-4, first with a smash, then following a missed amortized from the French. It will be noted that just before the second game ball, in full game so, the Italian is returned to his chair to change his broken lace ... It obviously has lost the rhythm to Cornet which, even if She held up to 6-6 after missing her two match bullets, then passed completely through the Tie-Break, lost 7-2. Océane Dodin (94th) will have to beat Camila Giorgi (30th) in the stride so that France avoids being at the foot of the wall on the evening of this first day ...
