Jabeur fired down six aces and won 78 per cent of points behind her first serve. She also broke four times and didn’t face a single break point on her own serve in a dominant display that delighted the home crowd.
She finished with a backhand drop shot that Rodina couldn’t scramble to reach.
The bottom half of the draw contains second seed Veronika Kudermetova and third seed Alize Cornet, who are set to meet in the semi-finals if they both win their quarter-final matches.
