Besides the elimination of Alizé Cornet by his young compatriot Clara Burel, there were no real surprises in Lyon. The favorites have held their place even if some have experienced more difficulties than others.
Burel and Ferro qualified
The young Clara Burel has disposed ofAlizé Cornet in three sets 6/1 1/6 6/3 in just over two hours of the game. Eye-catching as usual, Cornet did not know how to get out of the Burel trap in the decisive set. Quickly led 4/0, the native of Rennes qualifies for the knockout stages where she will face the Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich, tombeuse of Eugénie Bouchard yesterday. Note that with this victory Clara Burel will enter the top 200 next Monday.
As for Fiona Ferro, she benefited from the abandonment of her opponent Tereza Martincova. Conducted 2/6 1/4, the Czech was forced to throw in the towel due to back discomfort. Ferro joined the quarter-finals where she will be opposed to the winner of the match between Burel and Sasnovich.
Tauson, Golubic and Giorgi get the job done
The Danish nugget Clara Tauson was not on the court this afternoon. Indeed, the winner of the tournament’s number one seed continues her Lyon adventure by having Timea Babos in two sets 6/2 6/3. Impressive mastery, it will be opposed to the transalpine Camila Giorgi in the quarter-finals which hardly came to the end of the Serbian Nina Stojanovic in three sets 2/6 6/1 7/6(5).
Regarding the Swiss Viktorija Golubic, she validated her ticket for the round of 16 by beating Vera Lapko 5/7 6/3 6/4. She will be the opponent of the local Caroline Garcia in the quarterfinals.
