Monday, 30 May 2022 6:54 PM MYT PARIS, May 30 — Daria Kasatkina booked her place in the French Open quarter-finals for the second time today with a comfortable victory over Italian 28th seed Camila Giorgi. Russian Kasatkina, seeded 20th, took advantage of an error-strewn performance from Giorgi to win 6-2, 6-2 in only an hour and 20 minutes. Nadal, the 13-time champion at Roland Garros and holder of a record 21 Grand Slam titles, triumphed over the Canadian 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 in a match which lasted four hours and 21 minutes. She will face either compatriot Veronika Kudermetova or Madison Keys in the quarter-finals. Trevisan will face either last year’s US Open runner-up Leylah Fernandez or American Amanda Anisimova for a place in the semi-finals. “I’m excited about the quarter-finals at Roland Garros, that’s the most important. Nadal and Djokovic will meet for the 10th time at Roland Garros and 59th overall in a rivalry stretching back to 2006.. She next faces Chinese teenager Zheng Qinwen who made the last 16 on her debut when French veteran Alize Cornet, playing in her 61st consecutive Grand Slam, retired with a leg injury, trailing 6-0, 3-0 after just 44 minutes.

. The only thing I can say is that I will be focussed, try my best and fight until the end,” said Nadal of renewing his rivalry with the defending champion on Tuesday. Who the opponent will be doesn’t matter,” Kasatkina said. The 25-year-old broke into the world’s top 10 four years ago after reaching the last eight at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon before a slump in form. Nadal hailed Auger-Aliassime, who has been working with his uncle and former coach Toni since April last year. But she reached four finals last season to climb back up the rankings and is now one win away from a first Grand Slam semi-final. Kasatkina made just 10 unforced errors to Giorgi’s 37 in a dominant display on Court Suzanne Lenglen. He’s very young with a lot of power and great mobility,” said the 35-year-old Spaniard who has made the last-eight for the 16th time. Spain’s Badosa, who made the quarter-finals in 2021, retired from her last 32 match due to a calf injury when she was trailing Russia’s Veronika Kudermetova 6-3, 2-1.
