Alex Eala, a Filipino tennis prodigy, won her first Wimbledon singles match by beating her Argentinian opponent.
In the match lasting an hour and forty minutes, Solana Sierra, 16 years old, was defeated by the Filipino tennis star.
Two young female tennis players split the first set. However, Eala proved her skill in the third game when she swept Sierra following the Argentinian bet’s unforced error in Sierra’s forehand.
Eala won the next three games with two double errors and a Sierra forehand forced error. Ella’s brilliant first serve game allowed the Filipino to win the seventh game against the Argentinians.
Eala continued to make Sierra commit errors in the final plays of the second set.
Sierra tried to be closer to Eala by winning two consecutive games, but the Filipino tennis star maintained her composure and scored timely points despite her Argentinian opponent’s mistakes.
Sierra had 36 errors in the match, twice the number of errors that Eala had.
Eala, the second seed in the tournament, will take on Ane Mintegi de Olmo from Spain in the second round.
