Erakovic advances at Taipei Open

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 17/11/2016

Marina Erakovic is guaranteed her best result at a WTA tournament in five months after reaching the quarter-finals of the Taipei Open.

The New Zealand tennis No.1 beat lower-ranked Russian Veronika Kudermetova 7-5 6-3 to follow another straight sets win in the first round, over Japan's Kyoka Okamura.

Next up is German Tatjana Maria, whose world ranking of 116th is three places below the Kiwi.

Since reaching the third round at Wimbledon in June, Erakovic had either failed to qualify or suffered a first-round loss in five sporadic tournament appearances.
