  • Ashleigh Barty Wuhan 2018

Olympic champion Monica Puig gave herself an early birthday present, beating Wozniacki 7-6 (12-10), 7-5 to reach the quarter-finals.

A finalist at the tournament in 2017, where she beat three top 10 players before losing to Caroline Garcia in the decider, Barty hadn't beaten someone in the top echelons since.

Barty didn't allow Kerber any momentum as she denied the world number three the chance to narrow the gap on the top ranking held by Simona Halep, who lost her opening match.

Puig, who turns 25 on Thursday, appeared unfazed by her opponent's stature and kept the Dane under pressure throughout.

Barty will next face Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova for a spot in the semifinals after the Russian was a surprise victor over fifth seed Petra Kvitova.

Six of eight places at the season finale in Singapore next month are still up for grabs - only Halep and Kerber have qualified so far.

Germany's Kerber was downed 7-5, 6-1 by Australia's Ashleigh Barty, last year's runner-up in Wuhan.

Barty came storming out of the blocks, taking a 3-0 lead in the first set before the German offered some resistance to make it 5-5.

Normally, a player has to deal with things beyond their control on the court.

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

"I set myself that goal at the start of the year, that I want to stay top-20".

"(I played) very well here previous year, and it was an unbelievable week with some wonderful memories".

"It's been a really exciting year and hopefully there is a couple of big tournaments left".
