Facing the young Czech nugget Brenda Fruhvirtova, Alizé Cornet did not lose his means and, at the end of the third quarter, validated his ticket for the final of UTS 2.
After a first 100% men’s edition, the Ultimate Tennis Showdown opened its doors to women’s tennis with four players entering the semi-finals stage.For this tournament, Patrick Mouratoglou wanted to highlight a young shoot, victorious in the 2020 edition of the “Little As” tournament, the Czech Brenda Fruhvirtova. Only 13 years old, “The Prodigy” faced Alizé Cornet in the first semi-final of UTS 2 but, unsurprisingly, the experience of “The Volcano” made the difference.
The Frenchwoman quickly made the difference in each of the first two quarters (16-11, 16-10) before easing off a little against an opponent with her back to the wall, who had nothing more to lose. Brenda Fruhvirtova raised her level of play but failed to change the meaning of the game. Alizé Cornet completed this match in the third quarter (13-12) and will face this Sunday in the final Ons Jabeur or Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

After more than three months without a game to chew on, UTS will allow fans to enjoy themselves again.
4/12A new format
No more extended sets, the new format provides for 10-minute quarters. There will be a fifth in the event of a tie.
5/12Let go !
The goal of the game is obviously not to highlight the farting lead but rather to let the players express themselves more. New players aren’t any smoother, it’s the rules that are tougher.
6/12A good atmosphere
The goal is to mix the atmosphere of an exhibition with the quality of the game.
7/12Pair, it sticks
Benoît Paire, with his strong character and his racket qualities in hand, perfectly matches the desired profile.

Submissions for new Mississippi state flag include Elvis Presley
Nearly 2,700 public proposals to replace Mississippi’s state flag have been released online — including some that feature beer cans, Elvis Presley and Kermit the Frog.
The nine-member Commission to Redesign the Mississippi State Flag will now each choose 25 of their favorite submissions by Friday, narrowing the potential field to a maximum of 225 entries, Mississippi Department of Archives and History spokesman Michael Morris said. In total, 2,693 total submissions were received by the MDAH, which posted the submissions on its website Monday.
The eventual replacement for the Confederate battle flag — which had been widely condemned as racist and was retired last month — cannot include the Confederate symbol and must feature the phrase “In God We Trust,” the MDAH said.
The commission then plans to make its final decision on Sept. 2 before it goes to voters statewide on the Nov. 3 ballot.
In addition to submissions featuring Presley — a nod to his birthplace, as well as that of Muppets creator Jim Henson — some of the proposed designs were drawn by children and many featured the magnolia blossom, the state’s official flower, the Clarion Ledger reports.
Others incorporated blue lines that may harken the Mississippi River, contained references to college football, or read “In Allah We trust,” the newspaper reports.
