Wang, Muguruza, Alexandrova, Diyas advance to Shenzhen Open quarterfinals

In a tense encounter played out in front of a rapturous home audience at the Shenzhen Open, fourth seed Wang Qiang overcame a dismal mid-match dip in form to battle past Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-4 0-6 7-6(5) in two hours and 10 minutes on Centre Court.

World No.28 Wang started strong with breaks in the third and fifth games of the opener, holding out to take a one set lead even though she lost her serve once in the sixth game. The second set was handed on a platter to world No.
