Genie is through to her second quarter-final of 2018 at the Ladies Championships Gstaad by Ixion Services in Gstaad, Switzerland after she upset No.8 seed Viktorija Golubic of Switzerland.
Genie won 7-6 7-6 in two hours and 6 minutes against the 2016 champion.
After the match, Genie said:
“I don’t even think I’m playing that great. Conditions are tough – but I’m just trying to fight. That’s what helped me out.”
In Friday’s quarter-final, Genie will face Russian qualifier Veronika Kudermetova. Genie has never played the 21-year-old before.
