Maria Sakkari beat Diane Parry in 3 sets and secured her third consecutive qualification for the quarterfinals of Indian Wells.

Maria Sakkari celebrated her first qualification to a quarter-final this year in the 1000 of Indian Wells, with the Greek champion beating Diane Parry 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.

The 28-year-old Greek, No.9 on the board, won 5 consecutive games in the 1st set to win it 6-2.

The set was more difficult than the result suggests, with Parry having 3 break opportunities in the 6th game, but Sakkari holding on to make it 4-2.

Later, the French woman entered the match for good, as she made the only break in the entire 2nd set, leading 4-2 and without even once risking a break point on her own serve, she reached 6-3.

In fact, Parry also made the first break of the 3rd set, but fortunately for Maria, not the only one. In fact, as soon as she received the break, the Greek tennis player stepped on the gas, quickly turning 2-3 into 6-3, winning 4 consecutive games and making two consecutive breaks on Parry’s serve.

In the 9th game, a break point was erased by Maria, who withstood the pressure and finally closed the match on her serve without getting involved in bigger adventures, after 2 hours and 11 minutes of play.

Sakkari did not have an easy afternoon, as the final result shows, but at the most crucial point, they came forward, played without fear and got the ticket to the quarterfinals.
