The American Emma Navarro was pitted against the Slovenian Tamara Zidansek in the first quarter-final of the day. The first-seeded Navarro got off to a dream start and served home the first set 6-0. Navarro had a much easier first set than in yesterday’s match against Sweden’s second-ranked Björklund, where Navarro managed to win in a tiebreak.
Zidansek won her first game in the second set in the first game, taking a 4-1 lead but Navarro refused to let go of the second set, quickly leveling back to 4-4. Navarro was able to coolly close the second set 6-4, and is the first player to reach the semi-finals in Båstad.
