Martina Trevisan entered the semifinals of the ongoing French Open with three-set win over Leylah Fernandez here on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old Trevisan defeated No.17 seed Canadian Fernandez of 6-2, 6-7(3), 6-3 in 2 hours and 21 minutes and extended her winning streak to 10 matches, booking her place in the last four of a major for the first time.
The Italian bounced back after failing to convert a match point serving at 5-4 in the second set to seal her third career Top 20 victory and extend her winning streak to 10 matches. Just over a week ago, 28-year-old Trevisan captured her first Hologic WTA Tour title in Rabat, upsetting Garbine Muguruza en route.
Consequently, Trevisan found 43 winners to Fernandez’s 29, while keeping her unforced error tally to 29 compared to Fernandez’s 44.
