Maria Sharapova has reached the quarter-finals of the Tianjin Open with a 7-5 6-3 defeat of Poland's Magda Linette.

Sharapova, who received a wild card into the event, has not yet dropped a set this week, and was relatively unbothered during her first meeting with the World No.196.

The Russian tennis player, with 6-3 and 6-1 sets, has risen to semifinals, leaving 2-0 victorious.
