WS FINAL - 17-year-old French Open champion

The two times world champion, Carolina MARIN has been defeated by the very young Korean, AN Se Young, for the biggest win of her career. For the first time today, she has won a Super 750 title. It certainly won’t be the last time.

The Olympian Carolina Marin, from Spain, has missed today the opportunity to win another French Open title. AN Se Young managed to win an incredible 3 games clash. They already met last week at Danisa Denmark Open, and Marin prevailed in 3 games, but this time, this was the Korean’s turn ! She found a way to beat her biggest opponent at the general surprise. The most unexpected detail about the match is the deciding game. Carolina Marin only scored 5 points while her opponent scored 12 consecutive ones. Carolina Marin seemed without any solution. She had to concede the defeat 21-16, 18-21, 21-5. 

"Too many mistakes"

After the match, the spanish player explained that "she made too many mistakes, particularly in the second game, and it gave confidence to AN Se Young". She was smiling on court despite the defeat. She keeps in mind the positive week she had in Paris and most of all her several vitories against top players. She emphasized how much she enjoys playing here.
