Bianca Turati defeated Katie Swan of Great Britain 4-6, 6-1, 6-1 to advance to the women’s singles quarterfinals at the USTA Pro Circuit event in Stillwater, Okla. on Thursday.

The UT freshman’s second win of the event came against the 451st ranked player in the latest WTA world rankings.

Turati turned things around quickly after a first-set loss, dropping just two games in the rest of the match.
