Poland's Magda Linette out of Tianjin Open

Poland's Magda Linette out of Tianjin Open”

Venus Williams was knocked out in the second round of the Hong Kong Open by 19-year-old Naomi Osaka.

Sharapova has not added to her huge haul of titles since returning from a doping ban, but remains in the hunt for a 36th WTA Tour singles success after claiming the only break of the first set and two in the second to prevail.

The Russian former world number one defeated Magda Linette of Poland 7-5, 6-3 and will play Swiss qualifier Stefanie Voegele.

The Pole had made it to the second round of the Tianjin Open following a victory over Ukraine's Kateryna Bondarenko.

Also in Tianjin, Russia's Maria Sharapova registered a straight-set win over Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu to reach the second round.

After rain interrupted the opening days of the tournament, Sharapova said: "It's been a long wait for everyone, it hasn't been easy".

She also clinched the silver in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and was the 2008 Federations Cup champion.

At the 2017 China Open, which closed last Sunday in Beijing, Sharapova lost in the third round stage and failed to advance further to the quarterfinals.

Thursday's victory marks the third last-eight showing of the season for the five-time grand-slam victor from Russian Federation, fighting to revive her ranking after serving a 15-month suspension for using an illegal doctor-prescribed medication.
