Speaking after the victory, Swiatek said, “She’s playing amazing tennis. I’ve never had a chance to play her and I was surprised by some of her shots. Her topspin is amazing, huge congrats to her, it’s a huge tournament, it’s a good result. I’m pretty happy I could come back after a pretty frustrating first set when I held the lead, proud of myself that I’m still in the tournament.

 

After the 2 hour, 45-minute win, Swiatek will next face 11th-seeded American Jessica Pegula; Pegula rallied for a three-set win over Irina-Camelia Begu, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, to reach the last eight in Paris for the first time. 

 

On her quarter-final against Pegula, she said “(I’ll take it) the same as any other match, honestly. Quarter-final is such a stressful round, hopefully I’m going to be able to play my game. I know how Jessica can play, she’s a had a great season, I know how dangerous she can be.”
