Rodionova beaten in Nanchang
Arina Rodionova fought hard, but was ultimately beaten in the quarterfinals of the Jiangxi Open.
Arina Rodionova has had her quest for a WTA Tour title in China halted in the quarterfinals.
The 27-year-old Australian fought hard but ultimately fell to local hope Xinyun Han 6-1 7-5 as the Chinese world No.126 made the semi-finals.
Rodionova struggled early and was again down a break in the second set but rallied to get things back to 5-5 before Han again broke her serve and then served it out on her second match point.
Han will now face second-seeded countrywoman Peng Shuai, who beat Zhu Lin 7-6 (7-2) 6-0.
