So far, she had only been in the round of 16 in one of the top tournaments below the Grand Slams in Madrid 2016. The Fed Cup player fought as much as possible against Swiatek, who was in 17th place in the world rankings and thus 42 positions higher, equalized again after 0: 3 in the second set, but then had to face Swiateks after 1:39 hours on his own serve 11th match point beaten.
Angelique Kerber (Kiel) is the last remaining German player in the field. The former world number one will play against the two-time Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova from the Czech Republic on Saturday afternoon.
