Ostapenko Defeats Konta, Gets into Her 1st Italian Open Quarterfinal

ROME – Latvian tennis player Jelena Ostapenko on Thursday rallied from a set down to defeat United Kingdom’s Johanna Konta 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, to book a place in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open, a WTA clay court tournament held in Rome.

The reigning French Open champion needed two hours and 14 minutes to earn her first win over the Briton in their second career match, reaching her first quarterfinals in Rome.

Ostapenko struggled on serve during the first set, as she put only 33 percent of her first delivery in play and conceded her service game twice.

After missing on two break points in the second game of the second set, Ostapenko got the job done three games later, breaking her rival’s serve and building up on that advantage to draw level.

The 20-year-old Ostapenko took an early lead in the third set and went on to seal the win.

For a place in the semifinals, Ostapenko is set to take on the winner of the third-round clash pitting Australian Daria Gavrilova, who stunned Spaniard Garbiñe Muguruza in the previous match, and Russian Maria Sharapova, a three-time Italian Open champion.
