Shanghai came from behind to beat Tianjin 88-60. Shanghai was trailing by six points at the end of the first quarter, but the team recovered and had a 24-8 second quarter to move ahead. Shanghai controlled the game well to finish the third period 23-10, and then sealed the easy victory.
"I got a bit emotional last two points of my match. I really started to think still about the match because in tennis we really never know when it's the end. But my memories, happy memories, when I made my comeback here in 2017, when I step on the Philippe Chatrier, I couldn't really imagine me to be in the quarterfinal of this slam. Everything just came back to me," said Kvitova, who was attacked by a break-in knife-wielding robber at her home in the Czech Republic during the off-season of 2016 which left her dominant left hand seriously injured. It was at Roland Garros that the two-time Grand Slam champion made her comeback.
