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.”

Anastasija Sevastova, the last remaining seed, is now all that stands between Danilovic and a maiden WTA Tour final after she enjoyed a quarter-final walkover.
Anastasia Potapova will contest the other semi-final after she came from a set down to beat Valentyna Ivakhnenko 1-6 6-3 6-2.
She’ll face Tamara Zidansek, who overcame Laura Siegemund in straight sets.
