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

Bon Voyage, Paris

Kaitlyn McCarthy

The early rounds of the French Open are almost complete for the juniors. Stefan Kozlov, CiCi Bellis, Usue Arconada, and other Americans are still alive in the main draw. I hope the Americans continue their success. The training room is filled with juniors with sprained muscles from sliding on the clay. The two most common muscles were the quads and back muscles.

In my doubles match, we played a very good team of two Romanians. We won the first set 6-4; we had some chances in the second set, but fell behind and lost the second set 6-4. Then, lost the third set match tiebreaker.

The experience has been great and I can see large improvements that I have made in my game. I hope to build on the red clay experience from Belgium and Paris. After some rest and renewed training, on to the grass court season! I am already in the main draw for Roehampton, which is the week before Junior Wimbledon, and also in the main draw for Junior Wimbledon.
