Result: Errani beats Zheng in straight sets

Sara Errani comfortably beats Jie Zheng in straight sets to reach the quarter finals.

Sara Errani beat Jie Zheng with consummate ease in the fourth round of the Australian Open.

Errani claimed an impressive double break to race into an early 4-0 lead. Zheng struggled to deal with Errani's movement as the Italian took the first set 6-2.

The second set began much more evenly, going by way of serve until Errani imposed her dominance once more. Zheng saw her serve broken twice and went 4-1 behind as Errani seemed to be racing away with the match.

Errani dragged Zheng around the court throughout and finally took the set 6-1 in a surpringly comfortable victory over Zheng.

The Italian now faces Petra Kvitova in the quarter-finals.
