Like Caroline Garcia, Alizé Cornet will play in the quarter-finals of the Bad Homburg tournament, after her victory in two sets over Tatjana Maria.

Three players have already won their ticket to the quarter-finals of the Bad Homburg tournament, and of the three, there are two French women! After Caroline Garcia on Tuesday, it was Alizé Cornet who won her second match in the German tournament on grass. Seeded n°9, the Niçoise, who played the doubles final last week in Berlin, dominated the German Tatjana Maria (106th in the world) for the fourth time in four confrontations. She won 7-6, 6-4 in 1h30, despite a shaky physique, she who was bandaged at the level of both thighs. Cornet was able to win a badly embarked first set, since it was trailing 4-2, before winning three games in a row (5-4), then losing its serve again (5-5) and finally win in the tie-break by leading from start to finish (7-4). Superior in the game, the Frenchwoman was able to be patient in the second set, waiting for her opponent’s last service game, at 5-4, to take her face-off and thus win this match.

Kerber before Garcia?

For the first time since the Australian Open, Alizé Cornet (32) will play a quarter-final on the WTA circuit, and she thus makes sure to find the Top 40 next week. She will face for a place in the last four defending champion Angelique Kerber (who beat her four times out of six) or the Italian Lucia Bronzetti (no confrontation), who clash at the end of the afternoon. For a possible semi-final against Caroline Garcia? It would be quite incredible in this very gloomy season for French tennis.
