Beijing:

Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova cruised into the quarterfinals of the China Open today with a decisive 6-1, 6-1 win over fellow Russian Tatiana Panova. The No. 3 seed was in command right from the start, winning her first two service games at love and breaking Panova's service just 10 minutes in. She wrapped up the first set in less than 20 minutes. It was a sharp change of fortune from the previous day, when Sharapova crashed out of the doubles competition in the first round. Sharapova and Vera Zvonareva lost to the Japanese pair of Shinobu Asagoe and Rika Fujiwara. (AP)
