The quarterfinals of the Italian Open took place in Rome. Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina faced Czech Marketa Vondrousova.
The Czech managed to establish her dominance in the first set, which resulted in a "6:0" score by the end of the second set.
Vondrousova will now join Simona Halep, Karolina Plishkova, and Garbine Muguruza at the semifinals of the tournament.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian top contender Serhiy Derevyanchenko (13-2, 10 KOs) is “all in” for his upcoming title shot at WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo (30-0, 22 KOs).
"I do not think about it as it is my third title shot. I am just focused on the fact that the title of world champion is at stake. I am always 100% ready. I am going to lie: the championship is the main goal of my entire life. I cannot describe how crucial it is for me. If it works out, I will be very happy, I will feel like Superman," Derevyanchenko stated.
The fight will take place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. It is scheduled for September 26.
