Johanna Konta: Eases into last eight of Ningbo tournament
Johanna Konta continued her progress in the Yinzhou Bank International Women's Tennis Open with a win over Poland's Katarzyna Piter.
Konta needed only 65 minutes to ease through 6-1 6-1 at the $125,000 tournament in Ningbo, China.
The British No 3 reached the quarter-finals in the Guangzhou last week, beating former world No 14 Shuai Peng on the way, and she upset America's Lauren Davis in China on Monday.
Her form showed no signs of dropping in her second round clash with Piter, who is ranked 162 in the world, 37 places behind the Briton.
Konta's next opponent will be Sweden's Johanna Larsson, who shocked third seed Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-0 7-6.
Top seed Bojana Jovanovski is also through to the quarter-finals after opponent Shahar Peer withdrew, but second seed Zheng Jie was knocked out 6-1 6-1 by Shuai Zhang.
