法国当地时间巴黎-9月29日，2020年法国公开赛将继续进行女单首轮比赛。 2号种子卡普利斯科娃（Ka Pliskova）三盘拼搏，以逆转资格选手谢里夫（Sherif）6-7（9）6-2 6-4，并艰难晋级到第二轮。
"Let's not talk about my current level," Pliskova said after the game, "I think I still have a lot of room for improvement. This is the situation. I entered the next round, which is the most important."
The former world's No. 1 wasted eight inventory points and lost the first set, but launched a strong counterattack in the second half, and finally took 2 hours and 15 minutes to pass the risk.
The Czech star reached the semi-finals of the French Open three years ago. She was only one win away from successfully defending the Rome championship last week, but after losing the first set against Halep, she retired because of a left thigh injury.
"I didn't think about it," she said of the injury. "Although it hasn't recovered to 100%, there is no problem now. I don't think anyone here has reached 100%."
This is the 33rd Grand Slam Tournament of the 2016 U.S. Open runner-up. Sherif ushered in a major breakthrough in his career, becoming the first Egyptian female player to participate in the Grand Slam tournament after breaking through the qualifying rounds. She made her debut in the WTA race at Prague in August, and lost only 14 games in the three qualifying games last week.
"I think the game under these conditions will be more difficult than usual, or even harder than on hard ground. Half of the game is raining and very wet. It is not easy to score points, especially when the ball bounces so high. Under the circumstances."
"I think she played very smart today. She has won three qualifying matches and is naturally full of confidence. She has nothing to lose. I think she played very well today, using small balls and forehands well. The side spin of the second headband is also very useful, because like I said, the ball speed on the court is still relatively slow."
"I played a little more relaxed in the second set. Her style of play still made me uncomfortable. I didn't have much space and not much comfort, but compared to the first set, I still improved a little. "
"Anyway, the only thing I can do is to persevere and never give up, because you will always find opportunities, especially against such players."
entered the decisive set, Sharif's serve first appeared flawed, she was dragged into the marathon by the opponent in the seventh game. After seven halving fights, Pliskova finally fulfilled her sixth break point and achieved a priceless break.
The former world No. 1 staged a wonderful reversal, with a total of 45 winning points, and more than half of the 46 unforced errors came from the first set. She cashed five of the 15 break points she got and won nearly 80% of the first serve points.
Sherif's performance was also remarkable in the debut of the Grand Slam of his career. She had 22 winning points and 28 unforced errors, but only two breaks were not enough to overturn Pliskova.
