"I am very happy, I know her offense is fierce, I must also play aggressive, but also to ensure a serve, I think I did it," Kenning said after the game. In the whole game, the World No. 6 scored a total of 38 winning points and 26 unforced errors. The deciding set was as strong as ever.
"The most important thing is undoubtedly the spiritual level. I like to win three sets! I know it is not easy, but I still won the game and I am proud of myself."
Prior to this, the new Australian Open champion had never reached the quarterfinals in a WTA-level mud game, but after coming to Roland Garros, he made great strides. Today, facing the bitter owner who had a previous record of 0-3 behind and did not get a set, Kenning successfully advanced with his steady and steady performance, further refreshing his personal clay court record.
