Dodin hoisted himself into quarters

Thanks to her two-round victory over Vitalia Diatchenko, Océane Dodin qualified for the quarter-finals of the WTA tournament in Palermo.

Océane Dodin hadn’t known this since the Linz tournament last November. Seed number 6 in the WTA tournament in Palermo, the Frenchwoman qualified for the quarter-finals. Opposed to Russian Vitalia Diatchenko, Océane Dodin won in two hung heats. A meeting that started with great difficulty for the two players to win their faceoffs. Indeed, the first six games ended with a break but without an advantage being taken by one or the other. At the very end of the round, Océane Dodin made the commitment of her opponent and was able to serve for the set but without converting. The two players also struggled to decide between themselves in the deciding game. If Vitalia Diatchenko had a set point, it was the Frenchwoman who had the last word. The second set also started with a break exchange but it was the Russian who then took the lead to lead four games to two. It was then that Océane Dodin reversed the trend, winning the last four games to seal the fate of the match (7-6, 6-4 in 1h54 ‘). A day on the courts of Palermo which had started with a false start and the forfeit of Jil Teichmann, which benefited Elena Gabriela Ruse.
