China’s Peng romps to Jiangxi crown

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

China’s Peng Shuai claimed the Jiangxi Open ti­tle on Sun­day when she over­pow­ered un­seeded Nao Hib­ino 6-3, 6-2 in a one-sided fi­nal.

The 31-year-old Peng made light work of the Ja­panese in just un­der 90 min­utes to add to the maiden WTA sin­gles crown she won last year, also on home soil, in Tian­jin.

Peng, with a world rank­ing of 32 and the tour­na­ment’s sec­ond seed, was never re­ally in trou­ble on the out­door hard courts at Nan­chang in South­east China.
