Jelena Ostapenko suffered a humiliating double bagel at the hands of Wang Qiang and the in-form Aryna Sabalenka beat Garbine Muguruza in the second round of the China Open.

Wang reached the semifinals of the Wuhan Open after being crowned champion in Guangzhou and took just 55 minutes to beat Ostapenko - who was troubled by a wrist injury - 6-0 6-0 on Tuesday.

Sabalenka won the biggest title of her career in Wuhan on Saturday and showed no signs of fatigue as she saw off Muguruza 7-5 6-4 with another outstanding performance.

Angelique Kerber earlier battled her way past Carla Suarez Navarro 7-6 (7-4) 6-1, while US Open champion Naomi Osaka - who qualified for the WTA Finals for the first time on Monday - thrashed Danielle Collins 6-1 6-0.

Defending champion Caroline Garcia was a 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 winner against Polona Hercog, with Sloane Stephens and Kiki Bertens boosting their bids to play in Singapore by beating Zheng Saisai and Kirsten Flipkens respectively.

Katerina Siniakova, Dominika Cibulkova and Anett Kontaveit were also second-round winners.
