Zheng, 19, completed the upset in 78 minutes after winning 11 of the last 13 games to set up a quarterfinal clash against Claire Liu, who posted a 6-4, 6-1 win over Elise Mertens of Belgium.

Shuai Zhang of China also notched an upset on Wednesday with a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) victory over second-seeded Caroline Garcia of France.

Zhu posted a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Ankita Raina of India, Raducanu seized a 6-2, 6-4 triumph over Japan’s Moyuka Uchijima and Maria cruised to a 6-0, 6-3 win over Australian Kimberly Birrell.
