October 14, 2010 09:21 AM
OSAKA, Japan (AP) - Israel's Shahar Peer overcame a slow start Thursday to beat Ryoko Fuda 1-6, 6-1, 6-3 and advance to the quarterfinals at the Japan Women's Open.

The third-seeded Peer saved six of eight break points to beat the Japanese wild card and move into the final eight at the $220,000 tournament.

In other matches, seventh-seeded Iveta Benesova of the Czech Republic defeated Alberta Brianti of Italy 6-1, 7-5, and American Jill Craybas overpowered Olga Savchuk of Ukraine 6-1, 6-1.

Kimiko Date Krumm routed Japanese compatriot Aiko Nakamura 6-2, 6-0 to set up a quarterfinal against defending champion and top-seeded Samantha Stosur of Australia.

The 40-year-old Date Krumm converted six of seven break chances and needed just 52 minutes to oust Nakamura.
