In the second round, the 29-year-old Ukrainian (No. 20 WTA) beat Tatyana Maria from Germany (No. 50 WTA).

The match lasted 1 hour 13 minutes and ended with a score of 6:3, 6:3 in favor of the Ukrainian tennis player.

Let us add that it was sixth personal meeting of tennis players. Now the Ukrainian and the German have three victories each.
