“I feel great, I feel good and I really like to play here. It’s one of my favourite tournaments and I always love coming back here,” the Russian third seed said after the win
“The last game I was struggling because my concentration level got a little low. The match was tough, every point. She had a lot of opportunities as well in the second set, so I’m just happy that I won it so easily.”
Sixth seed Kirsten Flipkens wasn’t quite as destructive in her match against Dalila Jakupovic, but still claimed a solid 6-3, 6-3 victory.
“I think I just had to play my game like I did the other day,” Flipkens, who could face top seed Angelique Kerber in the quarter-final, said.
“I just tried to hang in there, and even though it was 6-3, 6-3, I think the match was more tough than the score says. It was a great fight for me today. This is a very special place for me.”
Eighth seed Magdalena Rybarikova was made to battle for her win by Stefanie Voegele as she had to come from a set down to win 5-7, 6-2, 6-3 to set up a last-eight clash against Sachia Vickery.
