Rybakina Continues Brilliant Run, Reaches Maiden Miami Open Quarter-finals

Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina extended her winning streak to 11 and moved into the last eight in Miami for the first time. 

The Kazakh 10th seed defeated her Belgian Elise Mertens 6-4 6-3 to set up a meeting with No. 25 seed Martina Trevisan of Italy, who defeated No.24 seed Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia 6-3 6-3.

"It was a really tough match today," said Rybakina, who claimed the first WTA 1000 title of her career at Indian Wells a week ago.

"Again, I didn’t start the greatest, but happy that it was in two sets. ...

"For sure, physically I’m not the freshest, but I’m happy that I’m managing and finding my way. 

"To be in the quarterfinal is great, and hopefully I’m going to play better tomorrow."

With this victory, Rybakina has kept the possibility of a "Sunshine Double" alive and moves within three wins of emerging victorious in the competition.
