(June 22, 2016) No. 1 seed Agnieszka Radwanska moved into the quarterfinals of the Eastbourne International with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Eugenie Bouchard on Wednesday.
The Polish woman was happy with her performance. “I think that was much better match than yesterday,” she said. “Well, I think good match from the beginning till the end.
“Couple of breaks on the way, but I think my serve was also the key in that match. Very happy I could come back in that second set in the end and winning in two sets.”
2009 champion, Caroline Wozniacki did not fare as well, beated by qualifier Monica Puig 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Wozniacki, trying to get back on track from a foot injury said “I mean, you don’t climb Mount Everest in one day.
“No, I played really well. I’m really happy with that. Yeah, the foot, the body’s feeling good. I’m pleased with that.”
“I served quite well for a while there, and then just for a couple of games in the end of the second set, yeah, I think I didn’t get the first serves in or she just went for the returns and it went in.
“But, you know, it’s the small margins today, really. To be honest, I think I played really well yesterday and I think I played even better today.
“So it’s a lot of positives to take with you. At the end of the day on grass sometimes it can be that little thing that can just make a difference.
“Yeah, I think I can just look up from here and just bring that confidence with me to Wimbledon and just hope for a good draw.”
“I thought I was in trouble quite a few times just when the match started getting very even,” Puig said. “She’s a great player and she makes you work for every single point, so it was really up to me to stay very focused in my game plan and what I wanted to accomplish out there in the court.
“All in all it was a really tight match. Like the score I think doesn’t really reflect just how tight it was. I’m just really happy I got through.”
Fifth seed Petra Kvitova lost to Britain’s Johanna Konta 5-7, 6-4, 6-0.
“There was a match in it definitely at the beginning, and I was happy with how I was able to carry but also create more momentum going into that third,” said Konta who lost the first set after having a 5-2 lead.
“Overall I thought the match was played at a very good level for both of us. I think it just, yeah, was about being able to string together a few more points. I thought I maybe may have done that a bit better than her today.”
