Ostapenko with power tennis
Jelena Ostapenko has her strengths in the powerful basic strokes, especially in the backhand. She puts a lot of pressure from the baseline and likes to dominate rallies.
Maria with an unconventional way of playing
The two players have never met before. It will be exciting to see how Ostapenko comes to terms with Maria’s unconventional style of play. The German repeatedly throws her opponents out of rhythm with her extreme backhand slice. Often she also uses the slice on her forehand. A tried and tested remedy against many players, especially on grass.
Ostapenko with little effort
Today’s opponent from Latvia had little trouble in the first three rounds. After two fairly smooth victories over Dodin and Wickmayer, she had some initial difficulties in the third round against Begu, but then won sets two and three easily. 3: 6, 6: 1, 6: 1 was the final result of the player from coach Marion Bartoli.
Will Maria knock out next favorite?
What kind of tournament is this for mom of two Tatjana Maria?! The 34-year-old German has played very well so far and knocked out two players who were significantly better placed in the last two rounds. Maria won in three sets against the Romanian Sorana Cirstea. In the third round she only needed two sets against world number five, Maria Sakkari, with a score of 6:3, 7:5. Even today, number 103 in the WTA rankings is an outsider again and wants to make the next coup.
