Zheng breezes into Monterrey Open quarters, Li progresses

Zheng Saisai eased into the Monterrey Open last eight where she will face fellow seed Ann Li.

China’s Zheng Saisai comfortably accounted for countrywoman Zhu Lin as she reached the quarter-finals of the Monterrey Open on Thursday.

Third seed Zheng, who is ranked 27th in the world, triumphed 6-1, 6-2 in a dominant display where she was seldom challenged.

In the last eight, Zheng will face eighth seed Ann Li, who overcame Slovenian Tamara Zidansek 6-4, 6-3 at the WTA International tournament.

Zheng is the highest remaining seed left standing in the draw after the first-round exits of top seed Sloane Stephens and Nadia Podoroska.

Russian qualifier Anna Kalinskaya continued her good run with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Nina Stojanovic and she will next face Viktorija Golubic in the quarters – the latter topped Lauren Davis 6-3, 6-1.
