BRATISLAVA, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Slovakia defeated Ireland 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw on Thursday at the Tehelne Pole Arena in Bratislava, and are now just one game away from the Euro 2020 finals.
After storming to a 3-0 lead in the first set, Swiatekb was reeled back in as the Australian Open winner Kenin began to find her form to turn the match in her favor.
"I could not just rest on the plane as my players did, but distributed some time to analyze opponents' tactics. I was so tired then," Ji recalled.
"We're going to continue to play the way we always do because attacking is in the DNA of Brazilian players," added Rodrygo, who was introduced as a 58th-minute substitute against Bolivia at Corinthians Arena on Friday.
"The quarantine will last ten days and only after two negative tests the infected skaters will be able to return to training with the group. Everyone was ready to take off and there was no indication that anyone was sick. Unfortunately, the coronavirus did not spare us, and now we have to deal with it," added the bronze medalist from Sochi.
Winless after the first two rounds, both sides are desperate to halt their stalemate coming into the 2020-21 season.
The fourth seed has yet to play Swiatek on the Tour but encountered with each other on the same stage in the junior competitions four years ago.
