Cornet upsets silver medalist Vondrousova at Chicago Women's Open

Marketa Vondrousova is out of the Chicago Women's Open after the silver medalist was upset by Alize Cornet 6-2 4-6 3-6.

Marketa Vondrousova has been playing very good tennis ever since she found form in Tokyo. The Czech player arrived in Chicago with high hopes however those hopes were crushed by Alize Cornet. The first set just showed how good of tennis she is playing right now as the Czech player raced past Cornet 6-2. Vondrousova was simply too good for Cornet who did not have any rhythm.

She played great to start the 2nd set taking a 2-0 lead and it seemed like she was cruising to a win. However, Cornet was able to get a better read on her 2nd serve exploiting it a little bit. That created chances and she tied it at 2-2. Vondrousova countered taking the 4-2 lead once more but Cornet did not give up.

She went on a 4-0 run to close out the 2nd set with 6-4. She created too much havoc on the 2nd serve of Vondrousova and that doomed the Czech player. It did not help that she committed six double faults as well. The 3rd set was a very interesting one where both had chances.

Midway through Vondrousva failed to convert break points only to lose her serve in the next set. Cornet took the 5-2 lead and held it for a 6-3 win after a great comeback win.
