Arantxa Rus has made it to the quarterfinals of a WTA tournament for the first time in 2022. The 31-year-old veteran from Delft won 6-4, 6-2 against Hungarian Dalma Gálfi in Rabat.
It is a very desirable result for Russian. The tennis star records few victories at the highest level during this period, while she often manages to get far at the second level. To illustrate: Russian won two consecutive matches at WTA level for the last time in October in Tenerife.
The global number 76 reached the quarterfinals of a WTA tournament for the ninth time in her career with her victory over Gálfi. Only in Monterrey in 2020 she also managed to reach the semifinals. That turned out to be the end station.
In the quarterfinals of the clay tournament, Rus will face Spain’s Garbiñe Muguruza (1) or Italy’s Martina Trevisian.
Rus is one of the three Dutch tennis players who are already certain of participating in Roland Garros, which starts next Sunday. Botic van de Zandschulp and Tallon groenpoor are also certain of the main tournament.
