Ukrainian Dayana Yastremsky won a second victory at the International WTA tournament in Marrakech with a prize Fund of $250,000.
In the second round of the “Thailand Open” Yastremsky first met with the 129th-ranked Peng Shuai, who eight years ago stood in the top 15 of the WTA rankings and was the first racket of the world in the first category.
The match was dominated by 18-year-old Ukrainian – Yastremsky beat Shuai 1 hour and 14 minutes, allowing an experienced opponent to win only five games.
In the first set Yastremsky quickly led 4:0, then played three break points and finished the game in their favor. In the second set, Shuai tried to make Diana a fight, but the Ukrainian was ready. Decisive in the match was the ninth game after a protracted struggle Yastremsky has made a break, and then easily filed to the match.
Dayana Yastremsky the second time in the season will play in the quarterfinals at the WTA tournament and her next opponent could be former first racket of the world Garbinie of the State, if one will be able to beat the German Mona Barthel.
