Sorribes, who only won one match on grass in 2019, will face the winner of the match between France’s Alize Cornet and Victoria Azarenka from Belarus in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Against Doi, she made the most of her break options (5/6) and saved eight of the 11 that the Japanese had. The Spaniard beats Doi for the first time, who won in their only previous meeting, two years ago in Hiroshima. This year, Sara dropped out before playing her in the second round of one of Melbourne’s 250.
