Kaitlyn McCarthy: Playing in the French Open & Astrid Bowl Charleroi

First-round victory!

Kaitlyn McCarthy


Today marked the first day of matches in the tournament in Astrid Bowl.

Some of the world's best juniors, both boys and girls, competed. Great tennis was abundant.

The girl that I played first round was a local Belgium, ranked around 700 in the ITF rankings. I played strong today, working the ball to the outside thirds of the court and mixing in a few drop shots. I forced errors and hit three aces. Today's tennis resulted in a 6-1, 6-1 victory.

My prize for winning today is a match with the number three seed tomorrow, who is currently 29 in the ITF rankings. Doubles will also begin tomorrow.
