Jil Teichmann’s opener (WTA 77) started well. The second service match was taken by Switzerland’s Sarah Errani (ITA/WTA 73). Even then, the 25-year-old did not give up and went into the first round with a score of 6: 3.
Then the second sentence showed a different picture. Tishman had a deficit of 2: 4. When the score was 4: 4, I got a break ball. He was only five points away from winning. Errani, who lost the final at Roland Garros 11 years ago to Maria Sharapova and was number 5 in the world at that time, took the set 6: 4. The Italian Tischman gave the set with two double faults and two forehand errors in the tenth game. In the deciding set, Irani promptly pulled away again.
Tishman has calf problems
At that point, the 25-year-old was experiencing calf problems. After the sixth game in the third set, Teichmann needed a time out for treatment. This did not achieve the required turnaround and Irani secured victory in 5:2 with the third match ball after 2:19 hours and secured entry to the second round.
On the other hand, Tishman is still stuck in the negative spiral. This is their tenth loss in the first round of the current season. In April it was still among the top 30 in the world. In the next rankings in two weeks, it falls into the top 100.
