Tomljanovic wins through to last eight in Rabat
Ajla Tomljanovic has continued her good form with a straight-sets dismissal of Kirsten Flipkens to reach the quarterfinals of the WTA claycourt event in Rabat, Morocco.
Ajla Tomljanovic has reached her second WTA quarterfinal in her past four tournaments with a straight-sets win over Kirsten Flipkens in Rabat.
The Australian reeled off seven straight games from 3-0 down in the first set, eventually winning 6-3 6-2 in one hour and 17 minutes.
Since the Australian Open, Tomljanovic has won 13 of her past 20 matches, and is expected to improve her ranking around 10 places – she’s currently at No.96 – thanks to her latest result.
In the Rabat quarterfinals she’ll meet Croatia’s Jana Fett, who dismissed Polish lucky loser Magdalena Frech 6-2 6-4.
Tomljanovic and Fett have never before met.
