Tatyana Maria – Elena Ostapenko 5:7

Despite a strong performance, Tatjana Maria loses the first set. At first, her opponent struggled with her unconventional game and made numerous unforced errors. But then Ostapenko came into play better and better and mainly attacked the second serves of the Germans. Maria only won 40 percent of the rallies she opened on second serves. The serve could also become a sticking point in the further course of the match.

Full risk! When the score was 40:0, Tatjana Maria took heart and pulled the backhand through on the return. The ball hits longline behind. But then Ostapenko takes the game to lead 6:5.

14:38

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 5:5

14:36

Tatyana Maria – Elena Ostapenko 4:5

Ostapenko gets the game to 5:4 and pushes the pressure on her opponent. She now has a much higher security in her shots than at the beginning of the game.

14:32

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 4:4

What a second serve! Tatjana Maria increases the risk on the second service because she realizes that Ostapenko would otherwise immediately develop too much pressure.

14:31

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 3:4

Class forehand of the Latvian! The 25-year-old plays the ball from the half-field briefly cross into the opponent’s T-field. Great angle!

14:29

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 3:4

Ostapenko takes the lead! Again, Maria attacks with a long slice on the return, but her opponent plays a perfect lob. The German can still play the ball back, but Ostapenko then plays a casual forehand from the half-field longline into the field to win the game.

14:19

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 3:1

Jelena Ostapenko hasn’t found her rhythm yet. She struggles with Maria’s game and makes too many mistakes. Even on her strong backhand, the Latvian still seems unsure.

14:18

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 3:1

Another strong serve from Maria! When the score was 40:30, the 34-year-old hit the line and her opponent hit the ball into the net.

14:15

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 2:1

Here’s the first break for the mom of two! When the score was 15:40, she was only using slice balls and finally Ostapenko hit the ball with his backhand longline into the net. The Latvian already has six unforced errors. So far, the plan of the experienced Germans has worked out perfectly.

14:13

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 1:1

As expected, Tatjana Maria often acts with slice balls that only bounce very flat on the grass. As expected, Ostapenko makes a lot of speed and wants to keep the rallies short.

14:11

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 1:1

That was fast. The 34-year-old German also mastered her service game and equalized to make it 1-1.

14:11

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 0:1

After a double fault when the score was 40:0, Tatjana Maria tried to attack the net directly after the return. But Ostapenko passed it with a backhand cross.

Ostapenko sends her opponent deep into the backhand corner with an aggressive attack ball, moves up and consistently pushes the volley cross into the field. 30:0.

Tatyana Maria – Yelena Ostapenko 0:0

Here we go! Jelena Ostapenko opens the game.

14:02

The players hit each other

The two players have just stepped onto the pitch and are hitting each other. It can start shortly.

13:46

Maria with an unconventional way of playing

The two players have never met before. It will be exciting to see how Ostapenko comes to terms with Maria’s unconventional style of play. The German repeatedly throws her opponents out of rhythm with her extreme backhand slice. Often she also uses the slice on her forehand. A tried and tested remedy against many players, especially on grass.

13:39

Ostapenko with little effort

Today’s opponent from Latvia had little trouble in the first three rounds. After two fairly smooth victories over Dodin and Wickmayer, she had some initial difficulties in the third round against Begu, but then won sets two and three easily. 3: 6, 6: 1, 6: 1 was the final result of the player from coach Marion Bartoli.

13:33

Will Maria knock out next favorite?

What kind of tournament is this for mom of two Tatjana Maria?! The 34-year-old German has played very well so far and knocked out two players who were significantly better placed in the last two rounds. Maria won in three sets against the Romanian Sorana Cirstea. In the third round she only needed two sets against world number five, Maria Sakkari, with a score of 6:3, 7:5. Even today, number 103 in the WTA rankings is an outsider again and wants to make the next coup.
