比莉-簡-金杯。英國輸給澳大利亞的首場比賽

最後更新於.從網球部分

在格拉斯哥對陣澳大利亞的半決賽中,希瑟-沃特森輸掉了首盤比賽,英國將不得不在落後的情況下進行反擊以進入比莉-金杯決賽。

如果哈里特-達特在下一場單打比賽中輸給阿傑拉-湯姆利亞諾維奇,澳大利亞將確保勝利。

如果英國人獲勝,三局兩勝的比賽將進入雙打的決勝階段。

英國隊在整個比賽中一直處於下風,在沃特森被擊敗後,要想進入決賽又面臨着艱巨的任務。

但是,本周我們對安妮-基奧塔翁的球隊了解到的一件事是不要把他們寫死了。

在最初未能獲得參賽資格的情況下,他們作為東道主獲得了一個名額,並與西班牙和哈薩克斯坦分在一個困難的小組,這兩個國家的排名都比英國人高。

在12強決賽開始之前,他們還遭受了另一個打擊,2021年美國公開賽冠軍、英國排名最高的選手艾瑪-拉杜卡努因傷被排除在外。

在周二輸給哈薩克斯坦後,他們可能在周四對陣西班牙之前就被淘汰了。

但由前世界排名第二的保拉-巴多薩率領的西班牙隊在小組賽首場比賽中以3比0戰勝了哈薩克斯坦隊,這就意味着英國隊需要以3比0戰勝他們--他們以驚人的表現做到了,基奧塔翁將此描述為 "非常特別的事情"。

在周四對陣五屆冠軍西班牙的必勝小組賽中,沃森表現出色,因為東道主進入了四強,但面對排名比她低104位的對手,沃森無法達到同樣的水平。

桑德斯比她目前237的排名要好,她最近在ITF巡迴賽上的表現說明了這一點,她已經把這一點帶到了本周的BJK杯決賽。

28歲的桑德斯自信而積極地開始了比賽,她在早期的交流中主導了沃特森,這導致了沃特森在首盤比賽中以2-1的比分取得了破發,沃特森沒能從中恢復。

英國六號選手在本周最大觀眾群的嘈雜支持下,在第二盤中以2-0破發,但未能保持領先,桑德斯恢復了信心,贏得了本周的第五場勝利。

Great Britain will have to fight back from behind to reach the Billie Jean King Cup final after Heather Watson lost the opening rubber of the semi-final against Australia in Glasgow.

If Harriet Dart loses to Ajla Tomljanovic in the next singles rubber, Australia will secure victory.

If the Briton wins, the best-of-three tie will go to a deciding doubles.

Britain have been the underdogs throughout the competition and face another uphill task to reach the final after Watson's defeat.

But one thing we have learned about Anne Keothavong's side this week is not to write them off.

Having initially failed to qualify for the event, they were handed a spot as the host nation and put into a difficult group with Spain and Kazakhstan, who are both ranked higher than the Britons.

They had also suffered another a blow before the 12-team finals started when Emma Raducanu - the 2021 US Open champion and Britain's highest-ranked player - was ruled out through injury.

After losing to Kazakhstan on Tuesday, they could have been eliminated before even playing Spain on Thursday.

But Spain, led by former world number two Paula Badosa, won 3-0 against Kazakhstan in their opening group match, which then meant Great Britain needed to beat them 3-0 - which they did in a stunning performance that Keothavong described as "something really special". • None Live TV and text coverage of GB's semi-final against Australia

Watson was brilliant in Thursday's must-win group tie against five-time champions Spain as the hosts reached the last four, but could not reach the same level against an opponent ranked 104 places below her.

Sanders is better than her current ranking of 237 suggests, illustrated by her recent form on the ITF Tour and she has taken that into the BJK Cup Finals this week.

Starting confidently and aggressively, the 28-year-old dominated Watson from the early exchanges and that led to a break for 2-1 in the opening set from which Watson could not recover.

The British number six, backed by noisy support from the biggest crowd of the week, broke for 2-0 in the second set but could not hold on to the lead as Sanders recovered to earn her fifth win of the week. • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone • None She scammed the world, then vanished: The 'Cryptoqueen' who persuaded millions to join her financial revolution
