Athletistic/Tennis. Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpishchev believes that Russian Daria Kasatkina lost to Spaniard Paula Badosa in the third round of Wimbledon because she could not keep up with her opponent and could not show her game on the court.

Kasatkina led 4:2 in the deciding set, but could not maintain the advantage and eventually lost to Badosa with a score of 6:7 (6:8), 6:4, 4:6.

“Kasatkina played well at the beginning of the tournament because no opponent prevented her from showing her game. When you have time, you create. But when she does not follow the hitting movements of her opponents, she loses. This happened this time too,” Tarpishchev was quoted as saying by TASS.

In the women’s singles, two Russians remained in the tournament – Anna Kalinskaya and Lyudmila Samsonova. They will face each other on July 6 in the third round.
