I started to feel very dizzy, everything was moving in my mind, so I asked for the Medical Time Out." Garbine's opinion is different: "I don't want to talk about this, I leave it to you to judge for yourself.
I was not happy with what happened at the end of the game and I told him, these things happen and it is easier to say them directly." Krejcikova, for the first time in the quarter-finals in Flushing Meadows, will now face the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka, second seed on the board.
