Next on court were surprised in the previous round Marcos Baghdatis and Pablo Cuevas. Cypriot managed yesterday to play two match-bol, Sam Querry, but today luck turned away from him. The first two sets did not reveal the winner, and in the final set, Baghdatis otehrwise began to actively atakovat. Almost every game on the pitch the Uruguayan was the break point, including the match-ball at the draw of the tenth points, however, the second racket of the tournament was able to stand up to the tie-break. As it turned out, he did it not in vain – in the final segment of the match was followed by a lot of mistakes on his serve, which in the end it Cuevas made smaller.

At the end of the first batch of Village led in sets, but only one hundred percent implementation of the winning first balls (13 of 13) gave him the advantage in the set. In subsequent batches of statistics Doody fell in direct proportion to the quality of his game. The Italian spent just over two hours for the difficult, but at the same time quite confident of reaching the semi-finals.

In the South-East of Britain also the weather turned very bad and the matches were moved to tomorrow. From the past meetings, the same Czech Pliskova played the match with the Japanese Misaki DOI, winning the second batch of 6:4.

In a parallel game Ekaterina Makarova managed to repeat yesterday’s feat , Joany Comtat. After losing the first game to the German Andrea Petkovic, the first Russian woman in a bitter struggle managed to rip the second set and the third broke Petkovic “dry”.

Interestingly, an identical victory Makarova and Katy brought them to the semifinals of the tournament.

Puerto Rican Monica Puig, which shows, probably the best tennis in his career, also came in 1/2 of the competition, beating Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic.

Puig not have good flow, but the abrupt and somewhat technical game on the back line today was compensated with two ACE with nine double mistakes.

It is worth noting that the 23-year-old Frenchwoman played was disorderly in its second innings – Mladenovic made 12 (!) double faults, however offsetting them with ten innings on the flight. It is also interesting that half double faults in the match Christina made a second batch, which still won.
