Paula will be looking for a spot in the round of 16 next Sunday Martha Kostyuk, 20 years old and ranked 40th, whom he lost in his two previous matches. The Ukrainian player defeated the American in the 2nd round Claire Liu by 6-0 and 6-4.

Badosa is not seeded in the Italian tournament due to his drop in ranking, so he has to deal with commit matches like this one against Jabeur immediately. However, the Tunisian has resurfaced in Rome and is still far from his best after a left foot injury forced him to withdraw from the semifinals of Stuttgart and cause it to fall WTA 1,000 in Madridwhere he failed to defend his title in 2022.

This reduced version of Jabeur is not enough to face Badosa, a tough tennis player when he is in shape: not in vain in a year when he reached world number 2 and ran as another contender for important titles of women’s tennis.

A muscle injury in his right leg conditioned his start to the season: it prevented him from playing in the semifinals of Adelaide WTA against Daria Kasatkina and also separated him from the first grand slam of the year, the australia tomorrow.

Since his return, Badosa has mixed painful defeats with other expected results, some green shoots that are more convincing. He lost last week against Elena Rybakina (Miami) either Aryna Sabalenka (Stuttgart)but already leaves a very good image in front of two of the best tennis players today.
