Snapshot from day eight at the Open – Daily Liberal

Posted: January 24, 2022 at 10:09 am

PLAYER OF THE DAY: Alize Cornet - the veteran Frenchwoman overcame former Open finalist and ex-world No.1 Simona Halep in three epic sets to qualify for her first grand slam quarter-final at age 32 and in her 63rd career major. QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I don't know what to say, it's just magic. It's never too late to try again." - Cornet after her emotional breakthrough. TOURNAMENT SUMMARY: Cornet has given herself a huge opportunity to make the semi-finals after setting up a last-eight battle with fellow unseeded hope Danielle Collins. Title favourite Daniil Medvedev's march through the men's draw slowed in a gruelling four-set fourth-round win over daring US serve-volleyer Maxime Cressy while seventh seed Felix Auger-Aliassime joined the Russian in the last eight with an equally hard-earned victory over former finalist Marin Cilic.
