Doha: The remaining top seed at the Qatar Open, Agnieszka Radwanska, avoided the fate of many of the other top players here and eased through to the final eight on Wednesday.
The No 3 seed won in straight sets 7-5, 6-1, against Romania's Monica Niculescu, to restore some order to a tournament, where many of the top players have crashed out in the opening rounds.
The Pole overcame windy conditions and a tricky first set, where her serve was twice broken, to make the quarter-finals.
"Well, for sure (that was) not an easy match. Very tricky opponent. She really made me play my best tennis, so I'm very happy to win that match in two sets," Radwanska told reported later.
