On Sunday, Maria will play No.16 seed Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia for a place in the last eight at the US Open in New York.
On playing Sevastova, Maria said:
I might be wrong. I don’t think I played her before. She’s had a great year. A big game. I watched a little bit of the beginning of her match today, then turned it off to focus on mine. Serves well. Again, gets a lot of balls back. Uses the slice quite well.
Yeah, look, I’ll get back on the practice court tomorrow and get ready for that one.
Here is Sunday’s schedule:
