Wang stuns Mladenovic in Tokyo
    2017-September-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINA’S Wang Qiang inflicted a “double bagel” on eighth seed Kristina Mladenovic of France in the first round of the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo on Monday.

Wang needed 48 minutes to seal the 6-0, 6-0 win over the world No. 15, who also suffered first-round defeats at the U.S. Open and in Connecticut, Cincinnati and the Canadian Open.

Germany’s seventh-seeded former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber beat last year’s Pan Pacific runner-up Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-4 to avenge her U.S. Open defeat by the Japanese teenager.

Kerber became only the second women’s defending champion to lose in the U.S. Open first round.

“It’s always tough to play against her,” the German told the WTA website after her victory.

“I was trying to come out here and really focus on every single point and make it better than last time... she’s a great player, great, talented player and tough opponent. For sure she will have great success in the future.”

Kerber plays either American qualifier Madison Brengle or Russia’s Daria Kasatkina in the next round.

The 19-year-old Osaka, born of a Haitian father and a Japanese mother, lost to Dane Caroline Wozniacki in the final of last year’s tournament.

Local favorite Kurumi Nara beat Kazakh Yulia Putintseva 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 in another first-round contest.(SD-Agencies)
