Paula Badosa emerges victorious from clash with Muchova in Rome

Paula Badosa has been playing really well on clay this year and she is in the quarter-final of the Rome Open after beating Karolina Muchova 6-4 6-7(4) 6-2.

The Spaniard is lowkey positioning herself as a dark horse candidate for the French Open because she's really playing well. There is a lot of confidence in the way she's playing and more importantly, hitting the ball. Even when things don't go her way she stays resilient and keeps working towards winning the match.

This match was pretty much like that as she could have given up dozens of times in this match when things didn't work as well but she kept grinding and got the win. She was down a break early in the first set but rallied to win four games in a row and win the set 6-4. The second set saw her struggle a lot with unforced errors.

She was down a break a couple of times but rallied each time to tie the score. We ended up in a tiebreak and a couple of poor choices cost her that set. Even so, Badosa bounced back well in the final set completely outplaying Muchova 6-2.
