Julia Goerges dumped out of Moscow River Cup by teenager Olga Danilovic
Top seed Julia Goerges is out of the Moscow River Cup at the quarter-final stage after losing to Olga Danilovic.
The German, who reached the Wimbledon semi-finals this year, cameinto the last-eight clash with some dominant form behind her in the competition, but sank to 6-3 6-3 defeat.
It was Danilovic’s first win against a top ten ranked player, and the 17-year-old couldn’t hide her delight afterwards.
“Every win here is important, especially since I played with one of the top players in the world right now,” Danilovic told the WTA website.
“It’s an amazing feeling, an amazing win.”
