Rybakina and Ostapenko advance to Rome

the latvian Jelena Ostapenko the Russian lost on Monday Daria Kasatkina in three sets, for 6-4, 4-6 and 6-0in round of 16 of the WTA 1,000 in Rome.

Ostapenko, who had already produced a surprise upset against Czech Barbora Krejcikova in the third round, extended her good form against the ninth seed in Rome, battling through tough moments.

The Latvian gave away his first serve, but recovered. He dropped another serve and responded with another break that helped him get back up and break again to take the set.

In the second, however, it was not successful. He suffered on his first serve and missed four ‘break’ balls in the next and another three in the eighth game, enough for the Russian to win the set.

However, Ostpenko, far from falling, was a whirlwind in the final set with three breaks, and saved the ‘break’ ball, which served to seal the ‘donut’.

The Latvian awaits an opponent in the quarterfinals, which will come out in the duel between the Spaniard Paula Badosa and the Czech Karolina Muchova.

In another match of the day, the Kazakh Elena Rybakina defeated Czech Marketa Vondrousova in doubles 6-3 and will face the winner of the match between Polish Iga Swiatek and Croatian Donna Vekic.
