Kasatkina in the quarterfinals at Montreal Rogers Cup - Premier category tennis tournament

Rogers Cup - Premier category tennis tournament was held in Montreal, Canada and belongs to the series of the prestigious events on the professional WTA circuit. Daria Kasatkina and Elina Svitolina, two members of our EMPIRE Tennis Academy were involved in Montreal.

Rogers Cup is being played on a hard surface with total prize money of 2.4 million USD. Daria Kasatkina, coached by Vladimir Platenik, advanced to the quarter-finals, when she knocked out Doi from Japan, Stosur from Australia and Vinci from Italy. Last year's US Open finalist Vinci was defeated 7-5, 6-3 in a third round.
"It was such a tactical duel of a two technical players. Daria gains experience and I'm glad she managed to win. I think we chose the right tactic but there is still lot of things to work on. But of course, I’m satisfied," confirmed after the Vinci’s defeat for www.empire-tennis-academy.com Vladimir Platenik, head coach of EMPIRE tennis academy, having himself best memories on Montreal.
"The atmosphere is great here. During the whole week lot of spectators visit the site. I have myself best memories only on this tournament. When I coached Cibulkova, she played her first final here and I think she was the same age (19 years) as Daria Kasatkina now," coach Vladimir Platenik noticed.
Daria Kasatkina played Angelique Kerber in the quarterfinals, when German in a previous round overcame another member of our Academy Elina Svitolina. Daria was defeated 2-6, 2-6 by Kerber.
