French Open 2019: Simona Halep knocked out by teenager Amanda Anisimova

A couple of months back Google announced Stadia, its cloud-based gaming service, that would allow users to stream games onto their televisions, PCs, and smartphones without the requirement of expensive hardware. The company has opened up and revealed more information about the upcoming service.

Google has confirmed that the new service will be rolling out in November this year. It will be introduced in several countries including Belgium, Finland, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the USA. Stadia will be compatible with PCs running Chrome, TVs (Chromecast Ultra and a Stadia controller), and smartphones starting with the Pixel 3, 3 XL, 3a and 3a XL. The Stadia controller will be sold separately for $69 (Rs 4,800 approx) in Just Black, Clearly White, and Wasabi colours.

This is honestly more than I could ever have asked for,” Anisimova, who won her first career title at tour-level on the Bogota clay in April, said on court at the finish. “That was one of the best matches I have ever played.

“Going out there today, I knew that if I wanted it I had to give something different.”

Anisimova got off to a canon start, playing fearlessly to open a 4-2 lead with the first break, and then steal Halep’s serve again to bag the opening set in under half an hour.

With balls leaving her racket at bullet speed, Anisimova kept the pressure on, sometimes drawing her opponent to the net before finishing off the point with passing shots. Basic, but brutally efficient.

In a half-empty stadium, ticket holders having opted for an early lunch before the men’s semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev, a few ‘Simona, Simona!’ chants came down from the stands as Halep finally won a game having lost seven in a row.

Anisimova was 3-1 up and Halep had break points, only for the American to see them off, finding unpredictable angles that left the Romanian often unbalanced.

But Halep broke back in the seventh game when Anisimova overplayed a backhand down the line. The teenager showed signs of nerves at 4-4 but Halep failed to convert a break point and her failed efforts to get back into the contest proved costly as Anisimova wrapped it up with her 25th winner.

Anisimova also became the youngest from her country to reach the last four at the French Open since Jennifer Capriati in 1990.
