WTA Bogota 2016 live on Friday, April 15 - Arruabarrena, Falconi in today's action

Suneer Chowdhary in News 15 Apr 2016
Lara Arruabarrena will be in action today.

Quarterfinal action from the 2016 WTA Bogota will be live on Friday, April 15 with Lara Arruabarrena and Irina Falconi heading the draw.

Fourth seeded Spaniard Arruabarrena will be up against Sachia Vickery in the first contest of the day at the campo estadio. Vickery beat Yuliana Lizarazo in straight sets in the first round before going on to defeat a seeded opponent in the second round.

She gunned down Lourdes Dominguez Lino in three sets after a flawless showing in the first set. Incidentally, she had gone down to the same opponent at the Miami Masters qualifiers.

Arruabarrena has not dropped a set at this tournament thus far. She had started with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Nadia Echeverria Alam in the first round and followed it up with another straight sets victory over Anne Schaefer, losing just one game in the process. This will be the first career meeting between these two women.

Fifth seeded American Falconi will be up against Argentinian qualifier Catalina Pella in the second fixture of the day at the campo estadio. The fifth seed has played a flawless tournament so far with no sets dropped in her two wins so far. She beat Emiliana Arango in the first round and went on to defeat Sherazad Reix in the second round.

Pella shocked Teliana Pereira in the first round as she came from one set down to grab the win through a tie-breaker in the final set. The Argentinian felt no nerves in the second round as she downed Elitsa Kostova in straight sets to make sure of her place in the quarterfinals. These two ladies have not met in the past.

Over at campo 1, Silvia Soler-Espinosa will take on Amra Sadikovic of Switzerland in the first fixture of the day. Alexandra Panova of Russia will face Paula Cristina Goncalves of Brazil in the last quarterfinal fixture.
