Magda Linette advances to quarterfinals of Jiangxi Open
NANCHANG, China, July 26 (Xinhua) -- Poland's third seed Magda Linette beat Japan's Eri Hozumi 6-3, 7-5 in the second round of the 2018 WTA Jiangxi Open to move into the quarterfinals on Thursday.
It took the 80th-ranked Pole one hour and 28 minutes to secure the hard-fought victory over her Japanese opponent.
"At first I was playing a little bit too slow so I just tried to be more agressive," said Linette who will meet Chinese Taipei's Liang Enshuo in the quarterfinals.
China's eighth seed Han Xinyun lost out to her compatriot Liu Fangzhou 3-6, 3-6. In another all-Chinese match, Xun Fangying had a 6-4, 7-5 win over Lu Jingjing.
