Well entered in the tournament by taking the input service of Svitolina, Scheepers is caught up twice ([3-3] and [5-5]) before the game was interrupted due to rain. Back on the court after forty minute, she cedes the first set 7/5. She dominates the following set 6/1. Not enough to destabilize the 84th World player who pockets the last round on the same score.
The African Highest Ranked in the WTA (68th) bows 7/5, 1/6, 6/1. Elina Svitolina will play her quarterfinal against Patricia Mayr-Achleitner.
