Top seed Karolina Pliskova is safely into the Tianjin Open quarter-finals after having far too much for Polona Hercog.
The Czech, coming off her second title of the year in Tokyo last month, was utterly dominant throughout.
She won the first five games of the match and, although she had to save a break point in the second set, she was still able to cruise to a 6-1 6-2 win.
Aryna Sabalenka was also a comfortable winner as she saw off Magda Linette 6-1 6-3 in one hour and 13 minutes.
