With a strong win over world #7 Jelena Jankovic, Sara is once again in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros! The match was very hard fought, especially the first set. This took no less than 81 minutes, and Sara let a 4-1 lead (with a double break) slip, before taking the set in a tiebreak. The second set was a little easier; 6-2 to Sara.
“It was an unbelievable tough match today”, said Sara after the match. “All the points were very tough. The crowd was very loud, it was hard to stay focused. I’m so happy to get through to the quarterfinals again!”
In the quarterfinal Sara will play against Andrea Petkovic. The head-to-head is tied at 1-1, both matches having been played on the clay in Madrid. However, Sara won the most recent meeting, a 2 sets win earlier this year.
