Tamara Zidanšeková after advancing to the semifinals of Roland Garros.
In the quarterfinals, she defeated the Spaniard Paula Badosová on a Parisian clay court after almost two and a half hours of three-hundred-point battle 7: 5, 4: 6, 8: 6 and achieved life success.
Zidanšeková is the first Slovenian among an elite single quartet at one of the big four events. Her semi-final opponent will be the winner of the duel between Russia’s Anastasia Pavluchenkova and Kazakhstan’s Jelena Rybakin.
Bados’s great start to the match came out, when she took Zidanšek’s serve twice and built up a 3-0 lead. However, the Slovenian player equalized to 3: 3 in the next minutes and celebrated success at the end of the set. Bados made too many unforced mistakes, her favorite backhands did not come out along the line.
In the second set, the Spaniard lost service twice, but Zidanšeková could not confirm the break, which got her revenge.
Bados started to take more risks, getting four games in a row from 2: 4 and forcing a third set. In the beginning, she led 2: 0, but Zidanšek mobilized, turned to 3: 2 and brought the even match to a successful end. In the fourteenth game, after the winning forehand, she converted the second sword ball in a row when Badosova was handed.
“I am very happy with advancing to the semifinals. I have had a crisis several times during the match, but my fans have always supported me.
They were great, thank you for your support. Many thanks also go to my whole team and to all those who supported me at home in Slovenia, “said Zidanšeková in the first post-match interview with former French tennis player Fabric Santor.
