Opelka will be making the third-round of a Grand Slam even for the first time in his career. The absorbing affair continued in the second set, which had extended beyond an hour as Svitolina served at 6-5 to level the match.

"At first I had a lot of success serving and volleying, so I kept with that", he said.

"I was a little bit shocked, it's never nice to get this when someone is injured like that", said Svitolina who goes on to face Greece's Maria Sakkari for a place in the last 16.
