"I feel like we both know each other's game very well", said Puig, who is now 3-3 against Wozniacki.

Barty, runner-up at Wuhan last year, staved off an early fightback from world number three Kerber to seal her first win over a top-10 player this year in an hour and 17 minutes.

"In terms of technique, in the past year I think I've been doing quite similar [things], but I'm really more confident", said Wang, whose family paid for her to train in Japan during her formative years, instead of sticking with China's state-run sports system.

Barty started strongly against the 39th-ranked Pavlyuchenkova, taking the first set 6-2, but the Russian did not appear in a mood to give in too easily and made an aggressive recovery to take the second. Well, she's a great player.
