Danielle Collins achieved yet another milestone with her impressive performance at the Madrid Open. The 30-year-old is going through an incredible patch in her career, especially after she earlier announced that she would be retiring at the end of the ongoing season.
Collins booked her place in the round of 16 of the ongoing WTA 1000 event in the Spanish capital after beating Jaqueline Cristian with a score of 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Sunday. With that win, she joined an elite list of players who managed to win 15 straight matches after turning 30. The list contained the likes of former world number one and legendary players like Serena Williams, Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert.
Before coming to Madrid, Collins secured back-to-back titles. She first lifted the Miami Open after beating Elena Rybakina in the final in straight sets with a score of 7-5, 6-3. Later, she lifted the Charleston Open after getting the better of Russia’s Daria Kasatkina in the final in straight sets with a score of 6-2, 6-1. Collins is now set to face off against the current world number two Aryna Sabalenka in the fourth round of the mega-event on Tuesday. Interestingly, this will be the first time that both players will face off on the tennis court.
