Erakovic reaches quarter-finals in Croatia

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 2/06/2016

New Zealand's Marina Erakovic is through to the quarter-finals of a WTA tournament for the second time this year after a fighting win in Croatia.

Erakovic beat American Sachia Vickery 6-4 6-4 at the Bol Open, the world No.134 winning key points to quell a player ranked 31 places below her.

She saved seven of the eight break points against her while converting three of the four break points on Vickery's serve.

Erakovic's next opponent is Luxembourg veteran Mandy Minella, ranked 186th, who won their only previous meeting four years ago.

The 28-year-old's other visit to the quarter-finals this year was at another clay court tournament, in Morocco in April when she was a beaten finalist.
