Elise Mertens came from a break down in both second and third sets to deny Simona Halep a place in the Mutua Madrid Open quarterfinals
On the Manolo Santana Stadium, No.13 seed Mertens upset No.3 seed Halep 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 in two hours and 34 minutes.
She played really well, and she definitely deserved to win because she was stronger in the end,
I cannot say I played bad, but I did some mistakes, important mistakes. Sometimes it’s just a little bit and the match is going away.
