Meet the last Australian standing, Daria Gavrilova. The spunky 21-year-old just became an Australian citizen, and now she’s broken through to her first Grand Slam fourth round after outlasting Kristina Mladenovic 11-9 in the final set.
After the match, she gave one of the best on court interviews:
“I am very emotional,” Gavrilova said. “I mean, you can see all my emotions. I get frustrated with myself, and I guess I show it. Sometimes I shouldn’t be. When I’m happy, I guess I show it, as well.”
The 39th ranked Gavrilova, who beat Petra Kvitova earlier in the week, will next face Carla Suarez Navarro on Sunday. And with her recent success, the local Melbourne resident is now getting recognized!
“I went to the gym today just to have a bit of a stretch. The person recognized, and I was like, Oh, cool.”
She better get used to it!
