Wimbledon: Simona Halep Beats Paula Badosa, Ajla Tomljanovic eliminates Alize Cornet

Halep beat fourth-seeded Paula Badosa in straight sets (6-1, 6-2) on Centre Court to move on to the quarterfinals of the Wimbledon tournament. With this win, Halep has now won 11 straight matches at the All England Club.

Simona Halep is the only woman who has won a Grand Slam before and is still playing in the women’s draw at this year’s tournament, and she is doing very well. She is seeded 16th this year, and to get to the semifinals, she will have to beat either Amanda Anisimova of the U.S. or Harmony Tan of France.

On Centre Court, the Romanian beat the fourth-seeded Paula Badosa 6-1, 6-2, and moved on to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon. The Romanian player won her 11th straight match at the All England Club with this win.

In 2019, the tournament was won by Halep, the 16th seed. But she couldn’t play because she got hurt the year before, and the tournament in 2020 wasn’t held because of the pandemic. Halep had won on grass courts before, but this was the first time she beat a player in the top five.

The player who was once No. 1 and won the French Open in 2018 is undefeated in this year’s tournament and usually beat Badosa in baseline rallies. The former number one player in the world also won the French Open in 2018. She finished with only nine mistakes that weren’t her fault, and she didn’t make the one mistake that would have caused her to fail.

Ajla Tomljanovic Advances

Ajla Tomljanovic beat Alize Cornet even though she lost the first set. This is the second year in a row that she has made it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

The Australian won 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 on No. 2 Court after a tough match that lasted 2 hours and 35 minutes. This set up a game with Elena Rybakina. The Australian was in tears after the match because it was so hard.

The year before, Ash Barty beat Tomljanovic in the quarterfinals and went on to win the tournament. Tomljanovic said, “I didn’t really think I could do it.” It’s hard to believe that I’m still in the same situation after a year.

In the round before, the No. 32 seed, Cornet, ended the 37-match winning streak of the No. 1 player, Iga Swiatek. The veteran French player was playing in her 62nd straight Grand Slam tournament, which tied Ai Sugiyama’s WTA record. She was also playing in her 65th tournament, but this year at the Australian Open, which was her first major, she only made it to the quarterfinals.

Cornet, who is ranked 37th, tied Ai Sugiyama for the record on the women’s WTA tour when she played in the main draw of her 62nd straight Grand Slam tournament.

Harmony Tan Loses

Harmony Tan’s run of success at Wimbledon, which started when she beat Serena Williams and ended when she lost to Amanda Anisimova 6-2, 6-3 in the round of 16, ended on Monday. Amanda Anisimova won in straight sets against Harmony Tan. The unseeded French woman couldn’t beat the American, who never had a break point during the whole match. In the round before, the French player beat the British wild card player Katie Boulter 6-1, 6-1. Tan’s short hold kept Anisimova from taking a 5-1 lead in the first set. Tan is ranked 115th in the world. Anisimova won the set in the end.

Even though the second set was closer, Tan couldn’t beat the 20th seed, who hit 28 winners during the whole match.

In 2019, at the French Open, Anisimova reached the semifinals, which was her best performance at a Grand Slam tournament. In the round of eight, she will play Simona Halep, who won Wimbledon in 2016.
