Roland Garros: Naomi Osaka quickly eliminated again | Tennis

After exactly one and a half hours, Anisimova, the number 27 on the seeding list, used her third game point with a backhand down the line. Anisimova and Osaka were already able to meet in the first round, because the Japanese has slipped into the world ranking.

The 24-year-old Osaka, now world number 38, has never progressed beyond the third round in Paris. Last year, she withdrew after controversy over her decision to skip the press conferences. The tournament threatened to disqualify her, after which she decided to withdraw herself.

Anisimova (20) reached the semifinals at Roland Garros in 2019 as a teenager. She then lost to eventual winner Ashleigh Barty.

Iga Swiatek had no problems in the first round.

Swiatek ready within an hour

Iga Swiatek has secured a place in the second round with a great display of power. The Polish number 1 in the world left Ukrainian Lesja Tsurenko, who is 119th in the global ranking, without a chance with 6-2 6-0.

The one-sided match on the covered Court Philippe Chatrier lasted only 54 minutes. The roof of the main runway was closed because it is rainy in Paris on Monday.

In the final game, Swiatek (20) used her third game point, with a return winner. “I’m glad I’m ready early. After the media obligations I have time to go to Paris for a while. What I’m going to do? Keep an eye on my Instagram,” said the Polish, who noted twenty winners.
