It was a 3-set match between Badosa and Ostapenko with the latter ultimately winning. The Spaniard has made a lot of progress in the past few weeks and looks like a player that could win Roland Garros if she keeps playing this well and improves more. Speaking after the loss, Badosa admitted that she's glad about the way she's progressing:
"I've been several weeks now that I think they are being from less to more, they are being positive, I am feeling good, I am winning good games. Obviously, I would like to get to more final rounds but this is a process and I think I'm on the right track."

On the match itself, Badosa added:
"She has played very, very well. In the end, I tried to hold on as much as I could, I tried to be there, throw it back, try to be a little more aggressive... But hey in the end she has also made it very difficult for me. I always felt like I could take it with me. I try to fight to the last point. I think physically it was costing me a little, I was already on the edge at the time, but I've always continued to believe."
