Paolini: “I was nervous before the match with Andreeva. She’s only 17, but she’s so perfect.”

Italian tennis player Jasmine Paolini admitted that she was nervous on the eve of the match against the Russian Mirra Andreeva in the semi-final of Roland-Garros.

On Thursday, the 28-year-old Italian, seeded 12th in the tournament, beat 17-year-old Andreeva 6:3, 6:1 to reach the French Open final.

– Of course, I’m more happy than relieved. It was a difficult match. Mirra’s performance is incredible. She’s only 17, but she’s so perfect. I was nervous before the match because I lost to her a month ago. I said to myself: “Come on… You have to do better.” I was worried in the first set, but with every ball I won, I relaxed. I am happy that I finally managed to win,” quotes Paolini in The Tennis Letter.

For Andreeva, it was the first semi-final of a Grand Slam tournament in her career. Paolini’s opponent in the final will be world number one Iga Szwiatek of Poland.
