Chennai Open: Magda Linette, Katie Swan reach quarter-finals

Linette will battle it out against Canada’s Rebecca Marino, the seventh-seed, in the last eight on Friday. Nadia Podoroska of Argentina knocked out fourth-seeded Tatjana Maria in a close three-setter. Podoroska won 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (6) in two hours and 46 minutes.

Podoroska did well to rally after being outplayed in the opening set against Maria, a Wimbledon semi-finalist earlier this year. Maria, who had trounced Indian No.1 Ankita Raina in her opening match, continued her good form and appeared set for a win and a spot in the last eight. However, the Argentine seemed to have different ideas.

The deciding set was a see-saw affair with fortunes fluctuating and Podoroska held serve to take a 6-5 lead and put the pressure on the experienced German.

However, Maria held on to push it into the tie-breaker. And, she rushed to a 5-1 lead before the Argentine fought back again and edged out her opponent 8-6.

The singles draw has already seen the top-seed Alison Riske-Amritraj beaten in round 1 by Gasanova, while No.5 and No. 6 seeds had also bowed out.
