POTAPOVA BOOKS A SPOT IN THE QUATERFINALS

The Russian player and the sixth seed of the tournament Anastasia Potapova beat the wild card owner the Latvian Diana Marcinkevica in the three-setter – 6/1, 4/6, 6/2. The match lasted for more than one hour and a half. Anastasia aced 1 time and made 3 double faults. Diana fired 2 aces and 6 faults. The beginning of the match was very intensive and in the second the struggle began. Anastasia turned the tide of the game and clinched a victory over Diana.

«Actually, in the second set I lost my focus and I started to play very emotionally. After winning the first set with ease, I relaxed a little bit and got lazy. What I really want to tell is thank you to my team, because I know some mistakes looked stupid. It will be a lesson for me. The next match will be against Patricia Tig, she is older, but still she is a good player. And I think that the match will be tough. I am gonna do my best and we will see».
