Sakkari with ease in the next round

Much easier than she might have expected, the Greek champion qualified for the next round of St. Peterburg Ladies Trophy, after prevailing over the French Alize Cornet with 6-2, 6-4.

Sakkari played exceptionally well throughout the match and left no room for reaction to her opponent.

In the first quarterfinal to be played tomorrow, the 24-year-old tennis player will be called up to face Swiss Belinda Bencic, who is at No5 in the world rankings. In the one and only game that both have played so far, Sakkari had won 6-3, 6-4 in a group game for the last Hopman Cup.
