Harmony Tan is making a name for herself at this year’s Wimbledon after her monumental upset over Serena Williams. Tan continued her impressive form by beating Sara Sorribes Tormo in the second round to progress into the women’s singles draw.

However, the Frenchman withdrew from the doubles tournament with Tamara Korpatsch a day after the biggest win of her career. Korpatsch was left frustrated even posting a lengthy rant about her teammate’s decision to pull out at the last minute.

Korpatsch congratulates Tan after Round 2 win

It seems that the duo have cleared out the misunderstanding and look to be on the same page. Korpatsch even posted a congratulatory message after Tan’s best-ever performance at a Grand Slam. She said, “Congratulations @tanharmony for a win against another great player.”

“Amazing week for you I’m glad your leg injury get better so quickly.” This comes a few days after the German blasted Tan for withdrawing before their opening round encounter. She said, “Unfortunately my doubles partner H. Tan retired from our doubles today.”

“She just texted me this morning. Let me wait here [until] one hour before the match start. I’m very sad, disappointed and also very angry that I can’t play my first doubles Grand Slam,” she added. Tan will now face Brit Katie Boulter in the third round on Saturday.

Will Serena Williams’ conqueror Tan continue her impressive spree?

Before the tournament, the Frenchman reached the second round of the Australian Open earlier this year. However, this will be her best performance since turning professional in 2012. Tan made her WTA and Grand Slam debut at the 2018 US Open, losing in the first round.
