Ratnika shuts out Ashvarya

After an erratic first set, that saw a couple of break exchanges, Ratnika fought back to make it set-all as Ashvarya slumped to a stream of errors. Ashvarya, who took a medical break after the second set, played well in flashes but lacked the consistency to press home the advantage.

Ratnika next plays compatriot Nidhi Chilumula, who shocked Australian Lauren Breadmore 7-5, 4-6, 6-1.

In the biggest upset of the day, second-seeded Rushmi Chakravarthi of India was shocked by Austrian Patricia Haas 0-6, 1-6. Haas next plays Indian wildcard Rutuja Bhosale who defeated Eetee Maheta 6-3, 6-2.

Third seed Nadia Abdala of Mexico also went down 4-6, 5-7 to Desiree Bastianon of Belgium. Bastianon next plays India’s Rishika Sunkara.
