Tianjin Open Maria Sharapova tames Magda Linette enters quarter-finals
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.
Maria Sharapova equalled her best performance since returning from a doping suspension as she breezed into the Tianjin Open semi-finals on Friday. Now ranked 86th after returning from a 15-month doping ban, Sharapova - granted a wildcard in Tianjin - plays unseeded Magda Linette of Poland next.
Voegele and Sharapova shared early break, but from the sixth game the Russian took control of the match.
"We did a really good job of holding serve in the first set", Sharapova said after the match. Not particularly aggressive or accurate in her first return games, Sharapova started to find the exact range off the forehand side.
