Berlin, Germany

Jaimee Fourlis is enjoying an incredible run at a WTA 500 tournament in Berlin.

The 23-year-old Australian, who earlier this week scored her career-first top-100 win to qualify for the main draw, has progressed to the second round.

Fourlis’ first-round clash with world No.69 Wang Xinyu was locked at one-set apiece when the Chinese player retired.

This handed world No.218 Fourlis her fourth career main-draw win at WTA level and first since July 2019.

Fourlis underwent a shoulder reconstruction in 2020 and is making only her ninth WTA main-draw appearance since her return.

The resilient Fourlis, who has won five ITF singles titles from seven final appearances since August 2021, is now set to face world No.4 Caroline Garcia.

It will be her first meeting with a top-10 player since losing to world No.10 Svetlana Kuznetsova as a 17-year-old wildcard at the Australian Open in 2017.
