Ukrainian tennis player Dayana Yastremska defeated Colombian Emiliana Arango in three sets in the second round of the clay-court tournament in the capital of Spain.

The match ended with the following scores: Mutua Madrid Open, 2nd round Arango – Yastremska – 1:2 (6:0, 5:7, 4:6).

Yastremska struggled in the opening set, failing to secure a single game as her Colombian opponent dominated, closing out the set in just 24 minutes.

However, Yastremska bounced back in the second set, seizing the initiative after a tight start. She took a 5-2 lead with two breaks, but Arango managed to level the score at 5-5. The set then became a nerve-wracking battle, with Yastremska emerging as the winner.
