Italy’s Martina Trevisan reached the quarter-finals of Roland-Garros for the second time in three years after a hard-fought win over Belarus’ Aliaksandra Sasnovich 7-6 [10], 7-5 in Paris on Sunday.

The Italian, ranked No 59 in the world, saved a set point in the first set and also came from 3-5 down in the second to complete the 7-6, 7-5 win in just under two hours on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

In the process, Trevisan extended her winning streak to nine matches, having won the WTA title in Rabat, Morocco on the weekend before the French Open.

During that win streak, Trevisan has lost only one set (coming in Rabat to Spaniard Garbine Muguruza).

Trevisan, who had knocked out 12th seed Emma Raducanu and 21st seed Angelique Kerber in earlier rounds, will meet either Canadian Leylah Fernandez, the No 17 seed, or American Amanda Anisimova, the No 27 seed, for a place in her first Grand Slam semi-final.

In 2020, Trevisan came through the qualifying draw when she was ranked No 159 in the world, to reach the last eight.

With two Grand Slam quarter-final appearances under ehr bely now, Trevisan ihas become only the third Italian female player to reach 2 or more Grand Slam singles quarter-finals; the others being Sara Errani (four) and Francesca Schiavone (three).
