  • Simona Halep secures long-awaited win over Maria Sharapova

A blockbuster first-round clash in NY went the way of Sharapova but Halep produced a brilliant performance in Beijing to win 6-2 6-2.

"It was a great match, I think I played my best tennis against her", Halep said. Along the way, Halep will become the co-author of a repetition of the record for the second time in history during the season on top of the world rankings will be five players (Angelique Kerber, Serena Williams, Karolina Pliskova, Garbine Muguruza and Simona Halep).

Romania's Simona Halep scores her first victory in eight attempts over Maria Sharapova in the third round of the China Open continuing in Beijing.

Serving for the victory and the world number 1 spot, Halep blasted 3 winners to book her place in the final, closing the match with a forehand down the line victor after 75 minutes to start a huge celebration of a well-deserved award. I'm really happy that I could do this.

"Of course it's the best moment in my life, and I want just to keep it", Halep told reporters in Beijing.

The world No. 2 eased past Russia's unseeded Daria Kasatkina 6-2, 6-1 in 69 minutes and will face Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko next.

Ostapenko made a typically high 33 unforced errors, but her powerful forehand kept her out of trouble against Romanian Cirstea, who is also her doubles partner.

In the other semifinals, Caroline Garcia, who upset No. 3 Elina Svitolina, meets Petra Kvitova after the Czech eliminated countrywoman Barbora Strycova. Halep will be making her fourth straight appearance in the Republic.

Kvitova, who produced 33 winners offset by 43 unforced errors, said she was exhausted but very happy with the victory, and will meet Caroline Garcia in the last four.
