Leo Borg, eliminated – El Diario de Yucatán

Victoria Jiménez is still alive in the World Cup

The son of the legend went home. What is expected to be a tennis figure soon continues from strength to strength.

Leo Borg, the young Swedish son of the mythical Bjong Borg, was out on the third day of the Yucatán Youth World Cup, on an intense Wednesday in which the defending champion Victoria Jiménez Kasinteva, the number one on the planet, battled three sets and, with class, he made it to the quarterfinals on the clay of the Country Club.

Borg, who was the main favorite after the injury of first seed Victor Lilov, never found his best form and lost to Croatian Dino Prizmic, who defeated him 6-3, 4-6 and 6-2, on the sunny afternoon at La stadium court “Lorenzo Molina Casares”.

Then Victoria Jiménez came into action on the big stage. The champion did not expect to fight as much as she did against the American UV Hovde, who led her to three rounds, defined with a score of 7-6, 3-6 and 6-3. “I got complicated at various times. I did not have the game that I expected. Fortunately I was able to get ahead, ”said the native of Andorra, one of the favorites in play and conduct in this tournament.

Victoria does not stop receiving questions about whether she will already make the leap to professionalism. She was already a junior champion at the Australian Open and her bonuses are very high in the tournaments in which she plays.

He comes to Mérida for the second time and says that “I would go back to play here whenever I can. It’s a wonderful tournament, a very good tennis level and the people … incredible ”, said the blonde left-hander, who, however, will hardly be seen on these courts as an amateur again. Everything indicates that she will jump to the WTA soon, although she is only 16 years old.

The Czechs Linda (3) and Brenda Fruhvirtova (4) are also at a fast pace. The European sisters again showed why they are considered among the top promises in tennis by winning their respective matches.

Linda over the American Qavia Lopez, 6-3 and 6-4, and Brenda over the Canadian Annabelle Xu (15), 6-1 and 6-3.

In duels between seeds, the Argentine Solana Sierra (5) beat the American Alexia Blokhina (11), 6-0 and 6-3; The North American Clervie Ngounoue (6) defeated the Finnish Laura Hietaranta (9), 6-3 and 6-1, and the Swiss Celine Naef the Canadian Victoria Mboko (12), 6-2 and 6-0. The Croatian Lucija Ciric Bagaric (10) beat the Japanese Sayaka Ishii, 7-6 (3), 3-6 and 6-2.

In a clash between South Americans, the Argentine Lautaro Midón (15) accounted for the Paraguayan Martín Vergara del Puerto, 6-1 and 6-1. However, Adolfo Daniel Vallejo (6) gave his face for Paraguay by defeating American Ryan Colby, 6-3 and 6-0.

In turn, the third seed, the Peruvian Gonzalo Bueno, defeated the Korean Gerard Campana Lee (14), 6-4 and 7-6 (4), and Ignacio Buse (7), also from Peru, did the same against the 10 from the seeding, the Swiss Kilian Feldbausch, 7-6 (5) and 6-1.
