Finally, we made it to the last tournament of the Asian swing: our Sara Errani – following the tough loss against the French Caroline Garcia in Wuhan first round – will be back on court at the China Open looking forward to stay safely within the Elite Trophy race valid for the Zhuhai Masters.
Our warrior won’t be seeded for this Premier5 in Beijing but has been an active part within the draw ceremony as chosen Players Representative: due to they very best duo of the WTA absence – Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova – Sara’s opponent will be the n.2 seed Petra Kvitova. The Czech Republic n.1 player has been an old acquaintance for ages now, as the two already fought each other in several battles including New Haven semifinals (2012) and Dubai finals (2013). The Bilovec native comes from Wuhan last-16 round where she didn’t manage to pass through Roberta Vinci.

Also, China Open will be the last season tournament for Sara to play doubles: after the well-deserved rest following her Flushing Meadows accomplishments, Flavia Pennetta re-joined the tour in order to ice the cake with Singapore’s Masters finals. The Italians picked and defeated the Austrio-Croatian team composed by Arina Rodionova and Darija Jurak in the morning on the Lotus Arena, laying down a 6-1, 6-3 marker. Thus, they earned the chance to take revenge on the n.1’s Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis, winners of their last meeting in New York City just few weeks ago.
