Osaka pulls out of Hong Kong Open with back injury

US Open champion Naomi Osaka overcame her emotions to roar back and defeat unseeded Zhang Shuai 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 in a roller-coaster China Open quarter-final on Friday.

The 28-year-old Wozniacki, who won the China Open in 2010, was once more imperious against the 20th-ranked Sevastova, who briefly retired from tennis in May 2013 with injury.

The Dane of Polish ancestry, who was also the victor in the Australian Open and Eastbourne this year, was a clear favourite throughout the tournament after defeating all rivals quickly, including China's Wang Qiang, Czech Katerina Siniakova, Estonian Anett Kontaveit, Croatian Petra Martic and Swiss Belinda Bencic.

Sevastova broke again for a 4-2 lead in the second set against a visibly struggling Osaka, who was complaining of a back injury.

Naomi Osaka says the pressure of expectation after her US Open win is causing her "stress" as the Japanese world number six tries to "prove" herself, BBC Sport reports.

Wozniacki, victorious at the Australian Open at the start of the year, has looked in ominous form as she prepares to defender her WTA Finals crown in Singapore at the end of the season.

"I feel great being here".

The Latvian said she had sustained the problem in her win over Croatia's Donna Vekic in the last 16.

However, another break of serve settled the match allowing Sevastova to serve it out to reach the biggest final of her career.

"I'm kind of happy that I was able to get this far".

The Argentine top seed Del Potro will face either Britain's fifth seed Kyle Edmund or unseeded Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia.
