Thailand’s Luksika Kumkhum is a very strong tennis player. Aussie Open is going on and Luksika was performing very well in it. But, in this Australian Open, Thai’s hope has come to an end. This has been done by Croatia’s Petra Martic on Friday in the third round.
From the 4th round of the game, Thailand was only two points away at 5-4. Everything was set and Thailand has been just 2 points far from entering the 4th round. But unfortunately, Petra lavishly played and kept the entire situation in her hands. She saved herself from the threat of losing by playing a solid baseline game and using powerful serves.
Luksika missed an easy chance to keep 6-5 and dumped the forehand at 5-5. To drop this service game, she lost about 2 most easy points, which took her away from the momentum. Under 40 degree, in around two hours and 20 minutes, Thai ended the entire dramatic encounter with two straight shots.
In a conversation with the interviewer, Luksika said that she had played in a fabulous way and she deserved to win too. In the third set, after 5-4, she felt tired and lost. However, this time’s performance by Luksika was extremely good. She had never reached the third round before. But this time, she has fabulously almost won the third round after choosing the second one.
On the other hand, Petra Martic’s whole attempt was worth praising. She ravishingly played and celebrated 26th birthday in an amazing way by appearing in the fourth round. She said about the hectic and challenging situation, but she was also completely ready for it with her dedicated preparation.
