Cornet upsets Garcia in all French clash

In an all French third round clash, the Volvo Car Open was shocked by the defeat of top seed Caroline Garcia.  The Charleston tournament is now at the quarter final stage, and has lost the top two seeds.

Alize Cornet (14) started slowly, giving up a 0-4 deficit to Garcia, and despite a comeback, fell short 5-7 and things looked grim,

The good news was the creation of 10 break points by Cornet compared to 5 for Garcia. The better conversion by the top seed saw her take the advantage.

The edge vanished almost immediately, as Cornet ran riot in set two, holding serve without needing to save a single break point. Winning 16 of 20 points on Garcia’s second serve, Cornet sealed the deal 6-1.

In the decider, Cornet won 84% of points on her first delivery and heat was decisive in her winning the set and match 5-7 6-1 6-4.

20 winners and only 17 unforced errors was a tidy return - Garcia was not helped by contributing 49 unforced mistakes.
