  • Elise Mertens sauve 8 balles de match avant de s'incliner face à Venus Williams

Lundi, elle jouait son premier match sur terre de la saison pour une victoire tranquille face à Rebecca Peterson (6-4, 6-2). À Miami, c'est ce même genou qui l'avait forcée à abandonner avant le troisième tour. Deux breaks consécutifs réalisés par l'aînée des Williams ont fait basculer définitivement le set en sa faveur. On ne sait pas si Serena sera remise à temps pour y prendre part.

"C'est super, vraiment. Je l'ai emmenée au Colisée et à la fontaine de Trevi".

Serena Williams à la fontaine de Trevi? "C'est OK. Je souris et je fais des photos".

Les deux soeurs s'étaient déjà affrontées dans la capitale italienne en 1998, il y a 21 ans. "C'est fou. C'était en demi-finales, non?"

Elise Mertens peut nourrir des regrets après sa 4e défaite dès son entrée en lice en cinq tournois joués sur terre battue cette saison. "C'est comme ça", a déclaré l'ancienne N.1 mondiale.

L'Américaine a bataillé plus de trois heures et a dû attendre sa 9e balle de match pour avoir le droit de rejoindre sa soeur cadette.

Et si Serena avait donc un "vague souvenir" de leur précedent affrontement romain, Venus, elle, avait tout oublié 21 ans après. "A peu près rien, à vrai dire", a-t-elle reconnu.
