Fifteen-year-old Alex Eala surged through from a horrible second set by facing the German who was nine years older than her. Both are left-handed and Eala faced Ambrosio head-on come the third set at 4-0 in a bold showing against the German opponent.

In her third straight quarterfinal appearance in a pro tournament, Alex Eala is set to face Oksana Selekhmeteva.

Alex Eala is looking to redeem herself after falling the quarterfinals of the second leg of the Manacor tilt against Ylena In-Albon of Switzerland.
