The Greeks are rumored to be an item, and now Maria is following the footsteps of her would-be boyfriend in her results. Early in the month, they won a title in the same week when Maria triumphed in Rabat and Stefanos in Estoril. Now, after an extremely hectic day in Rome, Maria “imitates” Stefanos to reach the quarters.
The Greek is coming straight from the qualifications to defeat the world no.15 Anett Kontaveit 6-3 6-2 in the 2nd round and then he survived Petra Kvitova after the Czech had to retire when she was 7-5 5-7 4-0 down because of a left calf injury.
Next vs. Kristina Mladenovic
Maria will face another surprising qualifier in Rome Rome for a place in the semifinal as she will lock horns with Kiki Mladenovic. They have never played each other so far.
Head 2 Head
The favorite for Tennis Tonic is Mladenovic that should win in 3 sets.
