Top seed Johanna Konta had trouble winning this time around. Katerina Kozova stood in her way, but the British beat the Ukrainian 6: 2, 1: 6, 6: 3. – it was a very difficult match. She plays very well on this surface and has already beaten some good tennis players – a favorite of the hosts said, quoted by the BBC. Continental’s competition on Friday will be the Belgian Alison van Uytvanck, who ousted the Swiss Victoria Golubic.

Another British international, Katie Poulter, also qualified for the quarter-finals. She won the match with fellow countryman Heather Watson 7:6(4), 6:3. – I love this court. I’ve already played some good matches and I’m very proud of myself. I think it was a very good match, admitted Poulter, who lost several months with a back injury.

The Briton will have to wait until Friday for her opponent in her third quarter-final on the tour. This happened because the match between American Lauren Davis and Alison Riske was interrupted by the falling darkness. Before that, Risk finished…the unfinished second-round match on Wednesday. He defeated the Chinese American Xiyu Wang 3:6, 7:5, 7:6 (3).

Donna Vekic, the 2017 Nottingham champion and a finalist in the 2019 season, was eliminated in the third round. On Friday, Serbka will cross his missiles with the Czech Teresa Martinkova, who eliminated the Spaniard Georgina Garcia Perez. French Kristina Mladenovic and China’s Shuai Zhang will also play in the quarter-finals.
