Svitolina reached quarterfinals at Roland Garros 2017, Kasatkina & Jabeur 3rd round

Four EMPIRE Trnava Tennis Academy members were playing in the main draw of the second grand-slam tournament of this year, Roland Garros: Daria Kasatkina, coached by Vladimir Platenik, Elina Svitolina and Ons Jabeur as a lucky loser reached 3rd round! Kozlova lost in the first round.

The fifth seed and the member of the EMPIRE Tennis Academy Elina Svitolina, one of the pre-tournament favourites after winning the Rome claycourt tournament, moved swiftly into the second round of the Roland Garros on Tuesday, easing through a potentially tricky encounter against Yaroslava Shvedova with a 6-4, 6-3 victory.
She overwhelmed also Tsvetana PIRONKOVA of Bulgaria in three sets 3-6 6-3 6-2 and Magda Linette (6-4, 7-5) in the 3rd round. She met Petra Martic from Croatia in the fourth round and won 4-6 6-3 7-5. In the quarterfinals, she tried to beat Simona Halep from Romania, but lost 6-3 6-7(6) 0-6.

Daria Kasatkina won against Yanina Wickmayer in the first round 7-5 6-4 and she was ecstatic to be fit after recent bad ankle injury in Rome. "When you want, you can do anything. I think mentally I sped up my recovery. When you're sitting in front of the hospital door with a leg like elephant, you don’t know what to expect," said Kasatkina after her first round win. She won also in the second round against Marketa Vondrousova from Czech Republic (7-6, 6-4). She met Simona Halep in the third round and lost 0-6 5-7.
