Vondrousova sweeps Sevastova and Konta makes history for GB

Vondrousova beat Sevastova 6-2 6-0 in 59 minutes. He will face Martic, who beat Kanepi (5-7, 6-2, 6-4). Konta beat Vekic (6-2 and 6-4).


The sensations that Marketa Vondrousova offered against Carla Suárez when she eliminated the Spaniard in the third round of Roland Garros, were not a day's blossom. The defensive and counterattack game of the Czech team worked again, and in what way, before Anastasija Sevastova (12th favorite), which she beat with amazing ease in 59 minutes: 6-2 and 6-0.

Vondrousova (19 years 38th world), one of the three teenagers who went to eighth (the other is the American Anisimova (17) and the Polish Swiatek (18)), will play the quarterfinals in which her best performance in a Grand Slam is already long (He made fourth round at the US Open last year). This Sunday, the Czech repeated a balanced performance, with few errors (13) and went up more to the network (9/11). On Tuesday she will face the Croatian Petra Martic, who eliminated the number two, Karolina Pliskova, in the third round and in the eighths she came back against the Estonian Kaia Kanepi (5-7, 6-2 and 6-4). He gets like that for the first time in the quarters of a major. Meanwhile, Sevastova was one step away from entering the top-10 ranking for the first time.

Konta makes history for Great Britain

Johanna Konta has recovered his best version and this Saturday he confirmed the good feelings he was offering a few months ago to access for the first time in his career to the quarterfinals of Roland Garros. In fact, until this year I had not passed the first round. She did it by winning Croatian Donna Vekic (6-2 and 6-4) in two sets. In addition, Konta has made history to be the st first British tennis player to access the quarterfinals from Jo Durie in 1988. That player reached the semifinals, which fell to the Yugoslav Mima Jausovec. Konta will be measured with Muguruza or Stephens.
