The head of the Russian Tennis Federation (RTR) Shamil Tarpishchev told Sportexpress that bad luck and nerves were the reason for Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova’s defeat in the final of the French Open. In his opinion, the Russian woman is capable of playing better.
“As expected, the game was level,” Tarpischev said. – Pavlyuchenkova lacked tactical actions a little. It was not possible to fulfill everything that I intended. There were a lot of mistakes in the first game, and then my nerves showed up. Anastasia was a little unlucky. In any case, she needs to be praised, she had a good tournament. Recovered after injury, performed well. I think now she will play even better. “
In general, according to the head of the RTF, Russian tennis players performed satisfactorily at Roland Garros.

This tournament can be assessed with a plus sign, ”said Tarpischev.
