    Osaka, Japan (SportsNetwork.com) - American Madison Keys made quick work of her second-round opponent Thursday and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Japan Women's Open.

    Keys, seeded sixth, needed just 51 minutes to close out an easy 6-4, 6-0 win over China's Zhang Shuai on the hardcourts at Utsubo Tennis Center.

    Next up for Keys is Zheng Jie, who ousted ninth-seeded Kristina Mladenovic of France, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 6-0, in a two-hour, 20-minute affair.

    Japan's Misaki Doi also moved on with a 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 win over countrymate Kimiko Date-Krumm, setting up a quarterfinal match against third-seeded Samantha Stosur, the 2009 Osaka champ and 2011 runner-up.
