"I'm speechless because it's the first time, it's one of my favourite tournaments, I love Paris, I'm having a great time and I don't want to leave anytime soon. I'll try my best to stay until the end for sure," an elated Sakkari told Marion Bartoli in her on-court chat.
"I'm actually enjoying myself, that's the most important thing. I'm enjoying myself on court, I'm actually not torturing myself when I'm on court. The match the day before yesterday gave me a lot of confidence, you saw it, I played really good tennis, so today I was ready for a battle. I just came here, played, and won."
Krejcikova into first major singles quarter-final
World No.33 Barbora Krejcikova put together a ruthless display against 2018 finalist Sloane Stephens to reach her maiden Grand Slam singles quarter-final in Paris on Monday.
The Czech two-time major doubles champion has enjoyed a stunning rise in singles over the past eight months and needed a mere 67 minutes to down Stephens 6-2, 6-0 on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.

Krejcikova saved all three break points she faced and benefited from 26 unforced errors coming off of her American opponent's racquet.
The 25-year-old, who is also into the mixed doubles quarter-finals and women's doubles quarter-finals, is a triple threat in Paris this fortnight and will now face American teenager Coco Gauff.
