Chinese tennis duo Yan Zi and Peng Shuai cruised to
the women's doubles semifinals at the China Open with a comfortable
6-1, 6-4 victory over Eleni Daniilidou and Jasmin Woehr
The newly combined Chinese pair displayed
irresistible form in the opening set, notching up a 5-0 lead when
the Greek-German pair were troubled with unexpected fatigue.
Daniilidou and Woehr improved their serves in the
second set in the hope of a comeback. But their effort was thwarted
by the host pair who demonstrated better skill and fitness.
Yan and Peng will play Taipei-based Chuang
Chia-Jung and Hsieh Su-Wei on Saturday.
