Krejcikova beats Azarenka and reaches the quarterfinals

Livescore.co French Open winner Barbora Krejcikova has reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in a convincing manner. The 26-year-old Czech defeated two-time tournament winner Wiktoria Asarenka from Belarus 6-2, 6-2. Azarenka, who won the Grand Slam tournament in 2012 and 2013, struggled with neck problems during the match.

Krejcikova, unable to advance past the second round in Melbourne, is now battling USA's Madison Keys for a place in the semis. The strong serving 26-year-old, who was in the final at the US Open in 2017, knocked out eighth-placed Spaniard Paula Badosa 6-3, 6-1 in her round of 16.

The tournament is also over for the two-time Grand Slam semi-finalist Maria Sakkari. The Greek lost to the American Jessica Pegula 6: 7 (0: 7), 3: 6.
