A close feat
In these quarter-finals Beijing, all the posters are very beautiful. And facing Caroline Garciathere was quite an obstacle in the person ofEvery Swiatek. The Lyonnaise put up a magnificent fight for more than 2h30 where she even came very close to winning. Indeed, after a very tight first set where she saved a set point, she managed to break the break when the Pole was serving to win the second set before narrowly losing in a new tie-break. Finally, she cracked a bit in the third set but the statistics speak for themselves: the two players made almost twice as many winning shots as unforced errors.
