At 9 am, all quarterfinal games started on four different courts, They were moved to Saturday due to heavy rain yesterday.

Tournament’s wild card, Maja Chwalińska, played against Chantal Skamlova from Slovakia for the place in the semi-finals. For Chwalińska, it was a game of lost chances. In the first set, she lost two break points and managed to win only one game in the second set. Chwalińska has lost 4:6, 1:6 and left the tournament.

At the same time, fighting for a space on the semi-final, Magdalena Fręch [4] has begun the match against Australian Priscilla Hon very strong, winning the first set 6:4. With the exact same result, Hon defeated her in the second set. In the deciding, extremely emotional set, after defending two Hon’s match games, Fręch ultimately lost the match 6:4, 4:6, 4:6.
