KIEV. July 14. UNN. Dayana Yastremsky continued successful performance on the courts in Budapest, breaking the third opponent in a row — the Croatian Tenu Lucas, reports UNN citing the website of tennis of Ukraine.
In the beginning of the meeting tennis players have exchanged breaks, and then the Croatian took the lead 3:2, then Yastremsky has won four games in a row.
In the second set, the Ukrainian led 4:1 with a break, but Lucas reduced the deficit to the minimum, but our 18-year-old compatriot managed to take the game of the rival and confidently submitted to the match — 6:3, 6:3.
It should be noted that in the semifinal match Yastremsky will play against the eighth-seeded Russians Ekaterina Alexandrova. This will be the third meeting for women’s tennis this year: in February Yastremsky beat the rival in the qualification of “Premiere” in St. Petersburg, last month in the semifinals of the 100-tournament ITF in the British Ilkley.
