Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina played in the 1/8 finals of the French Open.
Svitolina beat her opponent pretty quickly. It took her just 63 minutes to win two sets. The Ukrainian repeated her best result at Roland Garros.
"Definitely, it was not easy for both of us," Svitolina said in her courtside interview.
"I think it was really important to get into the consideration that it’s really windy and try to adjust the game as quick as possible and the person who adjusted the quickest would win, so I’m happy that it’s me today."
Svitolina converted her first match point when Garcia sent a forehand wide, and she will play Argentine qualifier Nadia Podoroska, who defeated Czech Barbora Krejcikova 2-6 6-2 6-3, for a place in the semi-finals.
As we reported earlier, Svitolina stood against Ekaterina Aleksandrova from Russia. The latter managed to put up a decent fight, but the world's No.5 racket won both sets (6:4, 7:5) and proceeded into the next stage.
