Zidansek beats Cirstea to storm into French Open quarter-finals

Tamara Zidansek became the first woman from Slovenia to reach the singles quarter-finals of a Grand Slam today with a 7-6(4), 6-1 victory over unseeded Romanian at the French Open.

The pair traded breaks in the first two games of a tight opening set on Court before Zidansek raised her level in the tiebreak to take the advantage in the match when an error-prone Cirstea hit a wild forehand wide.

World number 85 Zidansek had never been beyond the second round at a Grand Slam and will now face 2019 runner-up Marketa Vondrousova or Spain’s Paula Badosa in the last eight.
