Amanda Anisimova is extremely close to winning her 1st title in Bogota’ after getting to the semifinals, but that wasn’t easy at all.
The 17-year-old had to face in the quarters home favorite Maria Camila Osorio Serrano that is also 17. Theis game style is completely different since on one side Amanda is extremely aggressive while on the other Maria Camila has a solid defensive game. In addition, the Colombian had the full support of a typically hot Colombian crowd, and she was also more used to the conditions (altitude). Eventually, Amanda managed to win the match in 3 sets after a very tense battle 6-2 1-6 6-3.
Being mentally strong was the key. ANISIMOVA
After the match, the American commented
“It was a really tough match, obviously. Playing someone in their country is really tough. So, I’m really happy that I battled through it, and mentally I stayed strong. She is a great player, and I have a lot of respect for her, so I’m really happy with the win.
I’ve been playing well here, I’m going to keep doing what I was doing, and we’ll see how it goes.”
