Suarez Navarro Upends Gavrilova


MATCH OF THE DAY: [10] Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP) vs. [CR39] Daria Gavrilova (AUS)

Gavrilova did not bounce her way into her first Major quarterfinal. It was another battle against the veteran Suarez Navarro. Initially it appeared that Gavrilova would crush Suarez Navarro after she won the first set at love; however, Suarez Navarro is no stranger to dropping her first set horribly and fighting back to victory.  Gavrilova always intense, was more emotional tonight, slamming her racquet and screaming loudly at her errors, wasting energy.  In contrast, Suarez Navarro calmly worked her way back into the match.  Experience paid off in the end and Suarez Navarro broke the hearts of all the Australian fans when she knocked out their darling Gavrilova in three sets: 0-6, 6-3, 6-2.
