Sharapova downs Linette to reach Tianjin quarters

"I feel like I made a few too many errors on my return game which ultimately led to a hard first set but once I broke her early in that second set, I played a really good aggressive game and I felt like I had the momentum in the second".

After the surprising run in Stuttgart, in her very first tournament after the suspension, Sharapova came back into the best four as she comfortably beat Stefanie Voegele 6-3 6-1 winning seven games in a row from 3-3 in the first.

After 15 months of doping penalty for first time in a tournament in semifinals, Sharapova, only Grand Slam that attended this year, fourth round of U.S. Open tennis tournament, said farewell. "We did a really good job of holding serve in the first set", Sharapova was quoted as saying by the WTA website.

Voegele handed Sharapova three match points when she made her eighth double fault of the contest while trailing 5-1.

The former world number one bossed the second set, surging into a 4-0 lead as she wasted no time in dispatching Voegele.

Aryna Sabalenka and Sara Errani will meet in the other semi-final following victories over Zhu Lin and Christina McHale respectively. She saw off 71st-ranked Linette in just over 98 minutes to reach only her second quarter-final since her return to action.

Peng will now face Sara Sorribes Tormo, who beat Wang Yafan 6-4 2-6 6-3.
