Kasatkina upsets Vinci in Montreal


Daria Kasatkina

Russian rising star Daria Kasatkina upset Italian veteran and seventh seed Roberta Vinci in the third round of the Rogers Cup in one and a half hours.

The world No.33 Kasatkina played very aggressively throughout the match, securing the first set 7-5, before leading 4-1 in the second and closing it 6-3. Vinci’s forehand proved to be disappointing compared to her usual standards, letting Kasatkina dictate her game and leaving few chances to Vinci.

The nineteen-year-old Kasatkina reached the quarterfinals, where she will face number two seed Angelique Kerber, who squeezed past Elina Svitolina 1-6 7-6(2) 6-4.
