Petkovic, Svitolina reach Paris QFs

By Maria Noble In Archive

Andrea Petkovic advanced to the quarterfinals of the Open GDF Suez after a 6-4 6-2 win over France’s own, Kristina Mladenovic.

A last minute entry due to Ana Ivanovic’s withdrawal, Petkovic has been making the most out of her week in Paris. I would like to say she’s been very business-like in her first two rounds but she did this non-business fancy shot during her match against Mladenovic.

Petkovic will face another French player, Alize Cornet, in the quarterfinals.

Elina Svitolina is through to her first WTA Premier quarterfinal after defeating Galina Voskoboeva 6-1 6-2 in the second round. Svitolina started her week in Paris with an upset over 6th seed, Roberta Vinci. She’ll look to score another scalp when she faces Sara Errani in the quarterfinals.

Also through to the quarterfinals in Paris are; Angelique Kerber, who’ll play Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, and Maria Sharapova, who’ll play Kristen Flipkens.
