April 20, 2019

ROUEN, France (Reuters) – Caroline Garcia kept her composure to beat Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-3 6-3 and bring France level at 1-1 with Romania in their Fed Cup semi-final after Simona Halep outclassed Kristina Mladenovic 6-3 6-1 in the opening singles on Saturday.

Garcia produced a rock-solid performance to dismantle the challenge of Buzarnescu in one hour, 27 minutes on the clay surface in the Normandy city of Rouen as two-time champions France bid for their sixth final.

France captain Julien Benneteau opted for Mladenovic ahead of higher-ranked Pauline Parmentier and Alize Cornet for the opening clash against world number two Halep.

World number 66 Mladenovic, however, struggled with her serve and failed to cope with Halep’s more varied attacking style, racking up 35 unforced errors.

“It was really difficult to start the match because of the emotions,” reigning Roland Garros champion Halep said. “It was really tough to start the game, to start the tie.”

The Romanians, aiming for their maiden Fed Cup final after upsetting defending champions Czech Republic in an epic quarter-final in Ostrava, won their only previous Fed Cup tie against France in 1976.

“I’m really happy with the way I played in the second set,” Halep added. “It was much better. It’s difficult to play against Kristina because she cuts the rhythm and I couldn’t find my rhythm.

“In the end, I felt much better, and I can say I was dominating.”

After Sunday’s reverse singles, Garcia and Mladenovic are expected to team up to face Irina-Camelia Begu and Monica Niculescu in the doubles. The other semi-final pits Australia against Belarus, who are also level at 1-1 after their opening singles matches.

Nadal, que había ganado las tres últimas ediciones de la cita monegasca, no había perdido allí desde las semifinales de 2015, cuando cayó ante Novak Djokovic. [plr_link title=”Te puede interesar: ” post_id=”2580067″ link_format=”image” thumbnail_id=”2587796″ /] Fognini jugará el domingo una final inesperada ante el serbio Dusan Lajovic (48º). “Ha sido muy difícil desde el punto de vista físico. Espero poder recuperarme para mañana”, declaró Fognini nada más terminar el partido. El tenista de San Remo jugaba las semifinales en Montecarlo por segunda vez en su carrera, después de 2013, cuando quedó apeado en esa etapa por Djokovic sin poder acceder a la final. Fognini ha derrotado tres veces a Nadal sobre tierra batida, ya que le había superado anteriormente dos veces en 2015, en Rio de Janeiro y Barcelona. Lee también: Saúl Canelo Álvarez y su millonaria pasión por los automóviles deportivos de lujo Esta derrota en semifinales, y especialmente la forma en la que se produjo, arroja muchas dudas sobre las opciones de Nadal de cara al asalto de un duodécimo título en Roland Garros. Para el mallorquín, Montecarlo era el inicio de su temporada sobre arcilla y antes de esta semifinal había conseguido victorias convincentes ante el español Roberto Bautista (22º) y el búlgaro Grigor Dimitrov (28º), antes de tener que esforzarse en cuartos de final para deshacerse del argentino Guido Pella (35º), que tuvo muy cerca ganarle el primer set. Este Masters 1000 en Mónaco era además el regreso de Nadal a la competición tras su baja por problemas en la rodilla derecha antes de jugar las semifinales de Indian Wells en marzo y su renuncia después a participar en el torneo de Miami. De esta manera Fabio Fognini daba la sorpresa ante Nadal para llegar a su primera final de Masters 1000👏 — Mundo Tenis (@mundotenis31) April 20, 2019 Contenido relacionado: > Abierto de Australia: ¿puede Novak Djokovic llegar a ser mejor que Roger Federer? > Djokovic no da opción a Nadal y escribe la historia en el Abierto de Australia > Verdugo de Federer y Djokovic: por qué Alexander Zverev es el heredero que el tenis estaba esperando
