Dasha defeated the winner of Rolland Garros Elena Ostapenko from Latvia in the third round of US Open: 6-3 6-2.
Dasha was 0-3 down in the first set but then she won eleven games in a row. At that moment Ostapenko slightly revived and won the following two games but Dasha did not lose her lead and sealed the victory. The match lasted a bit longer than an hour.
Dasha will play against the Estonian Kaia Kanepi in the fourth round. Kanepi reached the main draw through qualification and has already won six matches at Flushing Meadows. The players met once in 2015 (on clay) and Dasha won that match.
