Luxembourg: The defending champion for Cornet

Qualified the day before for the quarter-finals in Luxembourg, Alizé Cornet will face Jelena Ostapenko. The Latvian, defending champion, joined the French after her victory in three sets on Thursday (6-2, 4-6, 6-1) against the Dutch Hartono, 300th in the standings.

Cornet has a meeting with Ostapenko. Qualified since the day before for the quarter-finals of the Luxembourg tournament after her easy success against the local Mandy Minella, Alizé Cornet was waiting to know her opponent. The Niçoise has known since Thursday that she will have to get rid of Jelena Ostapenko if she wants to regain the taste of a semi-final, two weeks after having stumbled in the final in Chicago on Elina Svitolina. The Latvian, title holder, had made short work in the first round of the German qualifier Niemeier. Thursday, opposed to the unknown Dutch Arianne Hartono, also after qualifying, the 30th in the standings and seeded number 3 in this tournament that she won last year in however experienced some difficulties (victory 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 1h48 of play).

Cornet leads 2-1 against Ostapenko

Particularly in the second round, won by the 25-year-old who had only participated in one WTA tournament so far (s’Hertogenbosch, in June 2019), without managing to extricate herself from qualifying. However, if Hartono surprised the surprising winner of Roland-Garros 2017 in the second set, in the other two rounds, the ex-protégé of Marion Bartoli clearly gained the upper hand on the 300th world. In great form, Cornet will certainly have to play his best tennis to bring down the defending champion. The Frenchwoman leads 2 wins to 1 against the Latvian. And the only time Ostapenko won in Linz in 2019 was when Cornet retired. What to approach this quarter-final with optimism for the latter.
