Erakovic into quarter-finals in Morocco

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 27/04/2016

Marina Erakovic has booked a place in the quarter-finals of the WTA tournament in Morocco after downing the world No.44.

Ranked 186 in the world, Erakovic won the first set 6-4 against Lesia Tsurenko before her Ukraine opponent retired with a leg injury.

The 28-year-old Kiwi, who needed to win three qualifying matches to make the main draw, will now face 123rd-ranked Serbian Aleksandra Krunic in the last eight.

"It's great to get a string of matches under my belt, not looking ahead but just for now and for the work I have put in, rehab as well.

"It's also great that my body is holding up really well, that's the most important thing," said Erakovic who has battled a knee problem for 12 months.
