Things didn’t go as planned for Lipski as she was caught out in the second round. Shevchenko levelled her with one elbow and Lipski confirmed she had suffered a fracture.

The Brazilian posted an update on Instagram and confirmed the injury from Shevchenko:

“I have a fracture in one of the bones of my face and, therefore, I still can’t feel my nose nor the left side of my lips/mouth; it’s painful to move my left eye and I still need to stay for observation, but I’m already taking all the medicines necessary.”
