Coco Gauff eases into Roland Garros round 3 over Van Uytvanck

Coco Gauff played a balanced match to down Alison Van Uytvanck at Roland Garros 6-1, 7-5 moving on to round three.

Gauff jumped out to a very hot start in this match against a player who generally does not play that well on clay. Gauff did not serve that well in the opening set but she completely outplayed her opponent in rallies. She was dominant on her own serve dropping only one point after hitting her first serve. She hit 9 winners as well compared to only 3 by the Belgian and it was enough for a 6-1 finish.

The 2nd set was a topsy-turvy affair where Gauff struggled quite a bit. It's not unusual for her as she tends to drop her serve quite often which she did early in the 2nd set. It came at 2-1 for her which was unfortunate as she could have made it 3-1 for herself. The Belgian completely turned it around taking a 4-2 lead after winning three games in a row.

Gauff broke back to make it 4-3 but lost her serve once more 3-5. She broke back and finally made it 5-5. She broke Van Uytvanck once more for the 6-5 lead but complicated once more like only she can losing her serve to send it into a tiebreak. Gauff committed 5 double faults having more errors than winners and that was a problem. Gauff finally finished it off with 7-4.
