Elina Svitolina ends Petra Martic dream run to reach French Open quarters

Vera Richards | 06 June, 2017, 06:08

"I mean, I can not believe that my first Grand Slam after a comeback and I'm already. actually only once I played fourth round before and it was actually here five years ago".

"When I got injured, my only hope was that I would get a second chance so I can play some of my best tennis again", said Martic, the world No. 290, after needing just 48 minutes to ease to a 6-1, 6-1 win over 17th-seeded Latvian Anastasija Sevastova.

Murray had never before played the unseeded Russian.

- Eighth seed Kei Nishikori of Japan beat South Korea's Chung Hyeong 7-5 6-4 6-7 (4) 0-6 6-4 after their third-round encounter resumed on Sunday.

"Obviously there was bad tragedy in London and Manchester".

"It's obvious on the court to see how much I actually enjoy and have no pressure. I am grateful that I can still perform in front of everyone". But the Romanian took care of that problem yesterday, routing Spain's Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-1 on Court Philippe Chatrier.

"I was expecting a very tough game", said Halep, the 2014 French Open runner-up. Although things looked better for Svitolina as she clinched the second set, 6-3, she had to take a medical time-out at the end of the set because of back pain. She will now head to her second Roland Garros quarterfinal of her career. One of those conceded the first break of the match and, though Martic wobbled with four errors of her own to hand the lead back immediately, the Ukrainian regifted it with a double fault to fall behind 3-5.

A downward revision would certainly prompt criticism from the global community, but not almost so much as an abandonment. In light of this, it will be hard for the President to argue that the Paris agreement hurts the USA economy.

She had beaten two seeded players in previous rounds and was close to adding a third to her list when she served for the match at 5-3.

The 26-year-old started the second set where she'd left off, breaking an error-strewn Svitolina to love. Thanks to the crowd for cheering me on.

"I chose to give everything I had and stay strong mentally", the Ukranian told WTA reporters after the match.

The third-seeded Wawrinka, the French Open champion in 2015, will face 15th-seeded Gael Monfils.

Czech world No. 2 Karolina Pliskova, also in the running to become both a first time major victor and the new world No. 1, was facing Veronica Cepede Royg in her last-16 tie.

Argentina's Paola Suarez was the last South American woman to reach a quarterfinal at a Slam at Wimbledon in 2004.
