Number of match points saved by Elena Rybakina, who battled past Paula Badosa on Saturday night, saving the match point at 4-5, 30-40, en route to a 3-6 7-5 6-3 triumph.

60 – Number of winners hit by Rybakina in the contest (Badosa had 16).

10 – Rybakina’s winning streak hits 10 with her victory over Badosa – she’ll face either Petra Martic or Elise Mertens next.
