Garbiñe Muguruza had a placid day in Chicago, unlike in his party of debut against American Ann Li. So much so that he did not even have to play his game against Victoria Azarenka to advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament. The Belarusian caused loss of the final table due to injury, so the Venezuelan-Venezuelan will arrive physically fresh and full of energy to face her next duel against the Japanese Mai hontama (200th), which gave the surprise against Rogers: 6-4, 6-7 (1) and 6-1.
Direct serve and victory!

In the rest of the matches of the day this Thursday, the highlight was the wins for Elina Svitolina (first seed) and Ons Jabeur (sixth), which guarantees a top-level match between the two in the quarterfinals. The other pairings are made up of Collins and Vondrousova.
