France, Paris-On October 2, local time, the 2020 French Open will start the third round of women's singles. The top seed Halep blew the 25th seed Anisimova 6-0 6-1 and advanced to the round of 16.
“I’m very happy to be back for the competition, and it was my birthday a few days ago. It’s great to be able to celebrate my birthday in my favorite city, Paris,” Halep said after the game. Enjoy the game."
The Romanian lost two consecutive sets to his opponent in the quarter-finals of the French Open last year. They met again after a year, and the world's second time spent 54 minutes to complete the sweet revenge, rewriting the record of the two sides to 1-1 draw.
"I control the game in my own hands," Halep said. "Last year I stood too far back and returned the ball easily, allowing her (Anisimova) to play her own way. With enough time and footsteps, she will become very, very dangerous, and she plays well. So today I changed my tactics a bit, and I think I did a good job."
"She is still very young and there are still many years to come," Halep commented on Anisimova, "She is an excellent player, and she will soon come to the top echelon."
This victory also allowed Halep to continue his undefeated record since the restart of tennis. The current two-time Grand Slam winner has won 17 consecutive victories, including winning the cup in Dubai before the suspension of the tour, and winning consecutive Prague and Laureate of Rome Station.
Next, she will face another opponent she met in the French Open last year-Polish star Swatek. The latter scored 30 winning points and only 15 unforced errors, 6-3 6- 2 Swept the 2014 tournament semifinals Bouchard, reached the top 16 of the French Open for two consecutive years.
