Anastasia Potapova, another 2001-born player, is also into the last eight after beating Krystina Pliskova, and she’ll come up against qualifier Valentyna Ivakhnenko.
Recently crowned Gstaad champion Alize Cornet is out, though, suffering a disappointing 4-6 6-2 6-3 defeat to Laura Siegemund.
However, third seed Sevastova had no such worries, overcoming Pauline Parmentier in three.
