Russian Kasatkina reaches second French Open quarter-final | Tennis News

PARIS: Daria Kasatkina booked her place in the French Open quarter-finals for the second time on Monday with a comfortable victory over Italian 28th seed Camila Giorgi.
Russian Kasatkina, seeded 20th, took advantage of an error-strewn performance from Giorgi to win 6-2, 6-2 in only an hour and 20 minutes.
She will face compatriot Veronika Kudermetova in the quarter-finals.
“I’m excited about the quarter-finals at Roland Garros, that’s the most important… Who the opponent will be doesn’t matter,” Kasatkina said.
The 25-year-old broke into the world’s top 10 four years ago after reaching the last eight at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon before a slump in form.
But she reached four finals last season to climb back up the rankings and is now one win away from a first Grand Slam semi-final.
Kasatkina made just 10 unforced errors to Giorgi’s 37 in a dominant display on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
