Pliskova storms past Wang into quarters of Wuhan Open
    2017-September-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CZECH third seed Karolina Pliskova needed only 48 minutes to clobber China’s Wang Qiang in the third round of the Wuhan Open yesterday.

This was a match, during which there was never any doubt at all, with Pliskova breaking Wang’s service game four times on the way to a domineering 6-2, 6-1 victory.

Wang’s loss ends the hopes of home fans at the Optics Valley Tennis Center.

“I felt great today. I think it was the perfect match from the first point. I’m really happy,” Pliskova beamed on court after the match.

Pliskova goes on to face Australian Ashleigh Barty in the quarterfinals tomorrow.

Barty continued her strong form yesterday, beating her second consecutive top-20 player with a 4-6, 6-0, 6-4 win over Polish ninth seed Agnieszka Radwanska in the third round yesterday.

In hot and humid conditions, Barty broke Radwanska’s service six times to advance to the quarterfinals.

The 21-year-old Barty, who beat fifth-seeded Johanna Konta in the second round, had the first service break of the match to lead 2-1 in the opening set, but Radwanska leveled three games later and broke Barty’s service again in the 10th game to clinch the opener.

The Australian broke Radwanska’s serve in the deciding set to take a 4-2 lead. She set up a game point in the eighth game with a backhand drop shot after a 20-shot rally to lead 5-3, then held serve in the 10th game to advance on her fourth match point.
