He has already won the 45th singles match of the season. This year’s tennis season jumper Barbora Krejčíková continues to rise through the ranks. If she continues the incredible ride at Indian Wells, she could climb into the top three in the standings. He also collects the words of admiration from the next Spanish opponent, Paula Badosa.
The native of Ivančice at the Indian Wells premiere probably didn’t expect her to get cold during the game in the middle of the Californian desert. But the program for the third rounds lasted Monday and Krejčíková and Amanda Anisimová didn’t enter the pitch until half past nine in the evening, when the temperature dropped below twenty degrees and the wind picked up.
“It was really unpleasant, especially the wind. I tried to concentrate on my game and make as few unforced errors as possible,” admitted the Czech tennis player after the match.
And she did very well, allowing the young Americans only five games and qualifying smoothly for the knockout stages of the tournament.
This means he’s getting a little closer to the top three in the standings and currently sits fourth in the live standings. If she wins at Indian Wells, the third woman in the world will pass in front of compatriot Karolína Plíšková. At the same time, a year ago, Krejčíková belonged to the 114th position.
The triumph at Roland Garros and the unprecedented regularity of performances push him higher and higher, but this is not yet reflected in the crowd of fans. On Monday, some fans on social media also noticed the empty seats during his performance and did not forgive the scathing remark.
“I see Krejčíková has taken his entire fan base to Indian Wells,” said one.
Twenty-five-year-old tennis players were defended by some netizens under the post, but her ingenuity and good play were also highlighted by her next rival, the Spaniard Paula Badosa, with whom she will share the quarter-finals.
“Bara and I are very good friends, we often train together. What she has done this year is incredible, downright crazy, now she really shines”, praises the Spaniard.
Badosa is also having a season of life this year. While the season started in the World Seventy, we now find her in the top thirty. Even though she beat Krejčíková once this year, she still respects her.
“She is very talented, I know very well that it will be a very, very difficult game,” she added.
The Czech Republic also knows full well who will oppose it on Tuesday afternoon in California. “She’s one of my favorite girls on the tour. It’ll be a great battle, I can’t wait,” Krejčíková said.
