Without having to compete, Jasmine Paolini has made it to the quarterfinals of the Palermo Ladies Open. China’s Shiai Zhang, the tournament’s third seed, won the first set against Italy’s Rebeka Masarova, the tournament’s fourth seed, with a doubles 7-6 victory. However, in the afternoon, Zhang’s opponent forfeited the match owing to exhaustion.
Changes have been made to the evening session schedule, with the match between the Italian and Chinese tennis players being replaced with the match between the Romanian tennis player Irina Camelia Begu and the French tennis player Oceane Dodin.
Winner of the battle between Austria’s lucky loser Julia Grahbher and Spain’s Nuria Prrizas-Diaz, the eighth seed, will face Paolini in the quarterfinals.
