World No. 1 Garbine Muguruza powered her way into the quarterfinals at the Wuhan Open Wednesday, defeating Poland's Magda Linette 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 to set up a mouth-watering clash with Jelena Ostapenko. The Spaniard dominated the first set, but performed meekly in the second at a hot and humid tournament that has seen all but three seeds crash out.The 23-year-old No.1 seed suffered with a poor forehand in the third set but broke her opponent at 4-5 to clinch the third-round tie.Ostapenko has now won 20 of her last 23 three-set matches, according to the WTA.Radwanska, seeded nine, looked strong in the first set but lost seven consecutive games to allow her opponent – ranked 37 in the world – to take a lead in the third.Pliskova, seeded third, said she felt the best she had all year during the match.
