This edition of Roland-Garros could not be like any other. It’s the case. Tuesday, the Philippe-Chatrier witnessed a sacred first in the women’s table since a woman, from qualifying, rose to the semi-final of the French Open. This woman is called Nadia Podoroska, she is Argentinian and 131st in the world. His victim of the day is none other than Elina Svitolina, defeated in straight sets (6-2, 6-4). The Ukrainian, seeded number 3, appeared to be on a highway …

Aged 23, Podoroska, who is playing the main draw for the Parisian Major for the first time, will face Iga Swiatek (54th) or Martina Trevisan (159th and also after qualifying) for a place in the final.

Her victory of the day, she went to seek it, while in control. Paradoxically enough, given the profile of the two players, it is the less experienced of the two who managed this quarter-final best.

The score is proof of this, as much as the course of events. During the first set, it’s simple: Svitolina did not keep her commitment once! Broken four times (against 2 in Podoroska), it did not exist. Yet it was she who had stolen her opponent’s face-off first …

Bis repeated during the second round. With a crossover of breaks quite impressive since six of the last seven service games of the game fell into the catcher’s purse. Podoroska had the merit of being the best raiser, the most precise and also the most daring (30 winning points against 8 – 30 unforced errors against 22). She more than deserved this great first.
