Berdych, Woz­ni­acki top­pled in China Open

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

To­mas Berdych and Caro­line Woz­ni­acki both lost their way in Bei­jing’s chok­ing smog as they ex­ited the haze-hit China Open with tough defeats yesterday.

As air pol­lu­tion hov­ered at “haz­ardous” lev­els and fans in face masks be­came com­mon­place, Berdych was sent pack­ing just 24 hours af­ter ar­riv­ing from his vic­tory in the rain-de­layed Shen­zhen Open fi­nal.

The Czech world No 5 never hit his stride against Uruguay’s 37th-ranked Pablo Cuevas as he was dumped out 6-4, 6-4 to be­come the roller­coaster tour­na­ment’s latest up­set.
