Chirico downs Peterson


Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson failed to turn the match against American Louisa Chirico. After a heavy set loss in the tie-break in the first set, Peterson managed to turn around late in the second set to take the match to a decisive third set.

But just like for compatriot Björklund earlier in the day, the third set flowed away in the American’s favor and the match ended 7-6 5-7 6-1 to Chirico. Chirico now has to face another American in the form of Claire Liu in the quarterfinals.
