She was successful in quarterfinal as well, taking two sets 7-5, 6-4 from Belgian Boeykens. 
"My opponent made lot of errors. At 5-1 she started feeling more relaxed, hitting few good shots, but I managed to take the set despite her comeback. Sixth game of second set was crucial, getting into lead 4-2. I started to dominate on the court. Being 5-2 up, I lost two games against strong wind, but I managed to win the match in the end. I am happy I played what we have agreed with the coach. I was concentrating until the end," said Vivien Juhaszova (coached by Martin Durdik) for www.empire-tennis-academy.com.
