"I was just trying to be focused on every point and not let this match take away the good tennis that I played in the first set", Svitolina said.

Third-seeded Pliskova was beaten 6-2, 6-4 by Russian qualifier Anastasia Gasanova, who was ranked 292nd in her first main draw of the tour and had never faced anyone ranked in the top 100 before.

"I have a lot of power and I have been using it the right way. I think this was the key to today's win". 'I was so sure of myself. 'Actually, I thought I would lose in qualifiers or something like that, but I just kept pushing myself, like, I need to win and I want to win. I don't know if I did this today, but that's my goal.

She beat three top-10 players last year, including 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, and while Kenin is ranked 18 places above her, the 25-year-old got her revenge as she claimed the biggest scalp of her career.

Pliskova, therefore, starts her year on a negative note, but there were no such problems for second seed Elina Svitolina, who was a 6-4 6-1 victor against Vera Zvonareva. Sakkari, the ninth seed, took out fifth-seeded Garbine Muguruza of Spain 7-5, 6-4.

In the third round of the Abu Dhabi WTA Women's Tennis Open, Putintseva (Kazakhstan) lost to top seed Sofia Kenin (USA) 6:3, 6:7, 4:6.

Monday's other quarter-finals see fourth seed Aryna Sabalenka face Elena Rybakina, the sixth seed, and Marta Kostyuk of Ukraine tackle fellow unseeded player Sara Sorribes Tormo of Spain.

She defeats her rival with the final score of 5-7 6-4 7-6 (3), catching up after the opening set.
