Anna-Lena Friedsam was eliminated in the round of 16 during her dress rehearsal for the French Open, which begins on Sunday. The 29-year-old from Neuwied lost on Tuesday at the WTA clay court tournament in Strasbourg against the Russian Anna Blinkova 4: 6, 6: 7 (11) after saving four match points.
The day before, Friedsam had caused a stir with a 6:0, 6:0 against the number three seeded Chinese Zhang Shuai. In Paris, the 29-year-old will serve in a main competition of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time since the US Open 2020. In Roland Garros, the DTB player only got past the first round in 2015 - at that time, however, she was only granted one match success.
Here the single tableau from Strasbourg.
