Daria Saville “excited for more” at Roland Garros 2022
Australian Daria Saville features in third-round singles action on day six at Roland Garros 2022.
Daria Saville has matched her career-best result at Roland Garros – and is now determined to advance to the fourth round for the first time.
The 28-year-old Australian meets Italy’s Martina Trevisan in third-round singles action today in Paris.
In a promising sign, Saville’s confidence is high following a second-round win against two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova on Wednesday.
“I had some tough losses before Roland Garros, so I was like ‘surely it’s going to turn around’. And it did. And I’m excited for more,” Saville said after recording her fourth top-40 win of the season.
The world No.127, a wildcard entry in Paris this year as she continues her comeback from Achilles surgery, is one of six Australians scheduled to compete on day six.
Roland Garros is broadcast live in Australia on the Nine Network and Stan Sport, with play beginning from 7pm AEST.
Aussies in action:
[WC] Daria Saville (AUS) v Martina Trevisan (ITA)
Women’s singles, third round, Court 14, second match
Saville has advanced to the third round at Roland Garros for a second time, matching her 2018 effort. The former world No.20 now faces a left-handed opponent for the second match in a row. The in-form Trevisan, a Roland Garros quarterfinalist in 2020, is currently enjoying a seven-match winning streak. The 28-year-old Italian won her first WTA singles title in Rabat last week, propelling her to a career-high ranking at world No.59. Although they have never previously played at tour level, Saville and Trevisan have practiced together this week. “I know her since long time,” Trevisan said of the match-up. “It will be a very tough match. She’s a fighter, she runs a lot.”
