Serbia's Aleksandra Krunic made further progress at the Japan Women's Open on Wednesday by eliminating seventh seed Alison Riske, a day after ushering local favourite Kimiko Date into retirement. The world number 67, who conquered her emotions to whitewash the 46-year-old Date on Tuesday, powered to a 6-3, 6-4 win over American Riske in sweltering conditions to reach the Tokyo quarter-finals. Third seed Elise Mertens also booked her place in the last eight, the Belgian overpowering Poland's Magda Linette 6-1, 7-5. In first-round matches, Kurumi Nara upset sixth seed Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-0 as the next generation of Japanese tennis players took centre stage after Date's tearful exit.
