Agnieszka Radwańska had an unexpectedly easy ride into the quarter-finals of the China Open on Wednesday with US rival Madison Keys quitting the match with a thigh injury after losing the first set to the Polish ace.

Radwańska, currently ranked No.8 in the world by WTA, seemed very much on top, taking the opening set in Beijing 6-3.
Rising star Keys (WTA No. 19) took time out for a medical following the set, and on her return confirmed that she would not be able to continue the match.
By bowing out, Keys became the seventh contestant to do so in the tournament thus far.
Radwańska will now face either Angelique Kerber or Caroline Wozniacki.
