In the evening, the Japanese Hayu Kinoshita (10th) suffered the lightning of the seventh favorite, who defeated her 6-4 and 6-1. Earlier, she defeated American Erin Ha in two identical sets 6-3. 

“I felt pretty solid, it was my first game in about a month and a half. It allowed me to get back into the swing of things,” she said after the first duel, according to a press release.

She now has an appointment with the fourth seed in the quarter-finals, or the Slovak Nina Vargova.

The Australian Taylah Preston (second) and the French Yaroslava Bartashevich (third) were both eliminated.
