In a match of first-strike tennis, Dayana Yastremska had the final word.

Yastremska broke in the last game of the second and third sets squeezing out a 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 upset of top-seeded Jelena Ostapenko on the grass of Birmingham.

Yastremska fired 14 aces against nine double faults and saved five of nine break points in a two hour, 15-minute victory.

The second set was on serve until the 12th game when Yastremska battled through a deuce game breaking to snatch the second set.


The 2017 Roland Garros champion Ostapenko broke to open the decisive set before Yastremska broke back to level after six games.

The pair exchanged breaks in the seventh and eighth games. Yastremska broke again to seal the win that sends her into the quarterfinals vs. Zhang Shuai. The eighth-seeded Zhang defeated Elena-Gabriela Ruse 6-2, 2-6, 7-5.

Earlier, hard-hitting Camila Giorgi rallied past American Lauren Davis 3-6, 7-5, 6-2.

The third-seeded Giorgi will play either red-hot Brazilan Beatriz Haddad Maia or Magdalena Frech for a semifinal spot. The 32nd-ranked Haddad Maia is coming off winning her maiden WTA title in Nottingham last weekend.
