Spain’s 35th-ranked Paula Badosa handed last year’s Rome Masters finalist Ons Janeur a 6-1, 6-4 shock on Friday to advance to the third round.

The result in 72 minutes over the fourth-seeded Tunisian sends Badosa into a match against Marta Kostyuk from Ukraine.

The New York-born winner who stood amongst the Top 10 here a year ago now leads Wimbledon finalist Jabeur 4-1 in their career series.

Jabeur was unable to defend her 2022 Madrid title due to injury and was playing on clay for the first time since April in the Stuttgart semis when she quit with a calf injury while facing Iga Swiatek.

Badosa won five of the last six games to cement her win.
