“Maria is a really good player. I mean, she’s one of the best. I’m happy to beat her tonight,” Suarez Navarro said.

“Sometimes on this court, it is easy to [get confused],” she added. “Well, the crowd, the music, it’s crazy. It’s a really good show, but for the players sometimes it’s tough, especially for me. I just tried to be focused. I tried to think about not too much things, just my work, my job. Today it worked.”

In the third round of the women’s doubles, Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei and Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus fell to a 7-5, 6-4 defeat to seventh seeds Elise Mertens of Belgium and Demi Schuurs of the Netherlands.
