The Estonian Anett Kontaveit defeated Belinda Bencic from Switzerland in straight sets – 7/6(7), 6/2. The match lasted 1 hour and 41 minutes. The Estonians made fewer unforced errors (20 vs. 32). “I think it really helped that I saved two set-points in the tie-break – Kontaveit said after her win. – Then in the second set at 4/0 she started to play very well and more aggressive and my serve was not as much as I would like it to be. But I was still fighting and just trying to do my best and managed to close out the match.” The win helped Kontaveit reach the semifinals. Her opponent in the next match will be the Latvian Jelena Ostapenko who bested Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus.
