Not the way I wanted to finish the match: Elena Rybakina after advancing to quarter-finals

Kalinskaya made a fine start to her fourth-round clash against Elena Rybakina. However, the Russian-born Kazakhstani player staged a brilliant comeback, taking the first set 6-3. The former Wimbledon champion continued her dominance with a nine-match winning streak.

"It's definitely not the way I wanted to finish the match. She's a great player, and I know she was suffering with a couple of injuries. If it's the wrist, it's difficult to continue to play, and I just wish her a speedy recovery,” Rybakina said during an on-court interview after the match.

"Every opponent is difficult, and I know that I must always bring my best. That's what I try to do for every match. I'm just really enjoying every time I step out on the court, and I'm happy I'm going fine in the draw. Hopefully, I can go to the end,” she added.
