Tennis: Poland's Magda Linette out of Tianjin Open
Maria Sharapova breezed into the semifinals of the Tianjin Open with a comfortable straight sets victory against Swiss qualifier Stefanie Voegele. But the Russian delivered a down the line forehand victor and put pressure on the Swiss No.196 who lost her serve for the second time as she hit a second double fault on the fourth break point.
The five-time grand slam champion, soundly beaten by new world number one Simona Halep in the China Open last week, saw off Linette 7-5 6-3 to move into the last eight. Voegele started the second suffering an early break in the opening game and never came back.
The Russian tennis player, with 6-3 and 6-1 sets, has risen to semifinals, leaving 2-0 victorious.
In the end, her eighth double fault and two massive winners helped Sharapova to clinch the 14th win of the season.
The successful tennis player will face third seeded in semifinals and Chinese Shuai Peng, champion of previous year.
Also on Thursday, Lin Zhu cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 win over Chinese Taipei's Su-Wei Hsieh, Belarus' Aryna Sabalenka posted a 6-3, 6-3 triumph versus China's Ying-Ying Duan and Spain's Sara Sorribes Tormo needed three sets to record a 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 victory over China's Yafan Wang.
Wildcard Sharapova advanced with five breaks of serve while losing her own once.
