Svitolina, Konta into Monterrey quarter-finals
Elina Svitolina and Johanna Konta, the top two seeds at the Monterrey Open, reached the last eight.
Svitolina, the top seed at the WTA International event, was too strong for Belarusian Olga Govortsova 6-3 6-4 in one hour, 18 minutes. The Ukrainian managed four breaks of serve in her victory, moving into a last-eight clash with Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez.
Konta wasteful on break points
Konta was pushed more but still got past German Tatjana Maria 7-6 (7-4) 6-3. The British second seed was wasteful, converting just one of 12 break points to advance.
