Wins for Kerber and Osaka at the China Open

Angelique Kerber beat top Chinese tennis player Zhang Shuai 6-2.1-6, 6-4 at the start of China Open 2019  in a match lasting one hour and 54 minutes, from which she had lost a year earlier in the same event, while Naomi Osaka beat Jessica Pegula 6-3, 7-6 (5) in a race of 1 hour 31 minutes.

Top-seeded Naomi Osaka will face either Jil Teichmann or Andrea Petkovic in the next round, and Kerber, the winner of three major tournaments within them and Wimbledon, will face Polona Hercog in round two, which beat Julia Goerges in her first round on previous Monday.

We look forward to seeing the continuation of Kerber and Osaka’s course in the event, as well as all the other big tennis names taking part in the event.
