Heather Watson will return to the top 100 next week

Heather Watson saved four match points before beating Magda Linette in a gruelling contest to continue her excellent run at the Tianjin Open.

The British No 2 is through to her first WTA Tour semi-final in more than a year after surviving a topsy-turvy contest to prevail 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (8-6) in three hours and two minutes.

This has been by far the best week of a generally miserable season for Watson and the victory ensures she will return to the top 100 next week.
