Seventh-seeded Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic eased to the quarterfinals Thursday afternoon with a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Frenchwoman Mathilde Johansson.

“I was playing well from the beginning. I played against Mathilde a year ago and won only in three sets in Indian Wells, so this time, I was careful not to make the match difficult for myself. I was playing good forehand. It was my best stroke today, so I tried to play as much forehand as I could. If you have lost the first set and lost your focus, it is hard to return to the match and you make a lot of mistakes, which I didn’t mind, of course.” In the next round, Zakopalova is to face either Hungary’s Gréta Arn or Zuzana Kucova of Slovakia. “I saw Arn playing here Benesova, who is a good friend of mine. I think she is very dangerous. She was very good at that match and she now plays before a home crowd, so it must be tough to play against her. As for Kucova, I didn’t see her play tennis for about two years”, Zakopalova concluded right after her second round match.
