NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/11/2016

Marina Erakovic has played her last WTA match of the year, beaten in the second round of the Hawaii Open in Honolulu.

The New Zealand No.1 went down 7-5 6-3 to tournament top seed Zheng Shuai, broken five times by the hard-hitting player from China.

Zheng, ranked 23rd in the world, took about an hour and a half to end 107th-ranked Erakovic's season.

The experienced Kiwi will now prepare for the ASB Classic in Auckland in January, where she has a wildcard entry.
