After recording her win for a couple of years number two Heather Watson has reached the quarter finals of the Tianjin Open.
Watson took 20 minutes and only an hour to defeat second seed Wang Qiang 6-3 6-0 – who reached the US Open this year.
Watson hadnt beaten a player since January 2018 but commanded against 22nd-ranked Wang – claiming her best victory since a win over afterward World No19 Anastasija Sevastova at Wimbledon.
In the last eight, the Magda Linette, who advanced following the retirement of Kurumi Nara if she had been 4-0 down at the first set of Poland will be faced by Watson.
Another win would be enough to propel Watson back into the top 100.
