Tennis: Gracheva dominated, Dodin forfeits... Garcia last French chance in Rome

If the day started well for the men with the lucky qualification of Terence Atmane. The fourth day of the WTA 1000 tournament in Rome got off to a bad start for the French on Friday with the eliminations of Varvara Gracheva and Océane Dodin, leaving Caroline Garcia alone in the main draw.

Gracheva, 88th in the world, was unsurprisingly dominated by the Greek Maria Sakkari, 8th in the world, who won in two sets 6-2, 6-2.

Dodin, eliminated in the 2nd round of qualifying, was not scheduled to play this Friday, but the 73rd in the WTA rankings was drafted at the last minute with the status of “lucky loser” after the withdrawal of Kazakh Elena Rybakina.

Sick, the title holder and world No.4 left her place against the Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu (161st) in Dodin, who threw in the towel after eight games while she was trailing 5-3.

French chances in the women's tournament now rest exclusively on Garcia's shoulders. The French N.1 and 23rd in the world will face the Italian Elisabetta Cocciaretto (56th) on Friday afternoon.
