LAS VEGAS, USA: American second seed Lauren Davis’ win over local favourite Asia Muhammad in the Party Rock Open’s night match ensured all seeds in the bottom half of the draw made it through to the quarterfinal.
That’s in direct contrast to the fortunes of their fellow seeds in the top half of the singles draw where all four seeds failed to make it out of the first round! The seeds’ conqueror’s then all fell themselves in round two.
The highly anticipated second round battle of the Rodionova sisters saw elder sister Anastasia progress but not in the manner she would have hoped as Arina retired whilst trailing 5-2 in the opening set. Arina was, however, able to take to the court again later in the day, as the sisters won through to the doubles semifinal.
Friday’s play will see the doubles final line-up decided and 18-year-old Lauren Davis will once again be featuring in the night match to bring the singles quarterfinal round to a close.
