Williams falls in Hong Kong second round

Williams falls in Hong Kong second round”

The 30-year-old Sharapova has been on the comeback trail since April after serving a 15-month suspension for taking the banned substance meldonium.

"I feel like I made a few too many errors on my return game which ultimately led to a hard first set".

Organisers of the Prudential Hong Kong Tennis Open would have been forgiven for thinking they had put their withdrawal woes finally behind them when the action got under way at Victoria Park this week, but there was one more sting in the tail on Thursday when top seed Elina Svitolina pulled out of the tournament citing a leg injury. "I felt like as the match went on I kept getting better and better". Wozniacki, who was the reigning champ of the tournament, injured herself during practice and determined on match-day that she was not fit enough to compete. "Unfortunately I have to withdraw from the tournament", Wozniacki said.

France's Kristina Mladenovic and the UK's Johanna Konta also pulled out in the days leading up to the event.

Wozniacki, who beat Eugenie Bouchard 6-1, 6-1 in the opening round on Wednesday, and Svitolina have already booked their places in the season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore which take place from October 22nd to 29th.

The 19-year-old Japanese player posted a 7-5, 6-2 victory to exact a bit of revenge from getting bounced by Williams in their Wimbledon match earlier this year.

In the quarter-finals, Osaka will meet Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who had beaten Jacqueline Cako 7-6 (7/3), 6-1.

Wang will face Australia's Stosur in Friday for a place in the semifinals and Cabrera, the world No. 155, has an all-Australian last-eight match against Daria Gavrilova, the seventh seed.

Big-hitting American Brady, ranked 70, easily overcame an out-of-sorts local crowd favourite Zhang 6-3, 6-4 in just over an hour.
