There's been good and bad news for Chinese players at the French
Open. China's top seed Li Na has progressed to the third round, but
compatriot Sun Tiantian crashed out in her first round match.
16th seed Li Na of China sealed her second round victory at
Roland Garros after eliminating France's Pauline Parmentier. After
dropping the second set, Li Na recomposed herself to finally win
the decider. The 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 victory sent her into the last 32,
marking her best performance in the French Open.
But for another Chinese player it was a disappointingly early
exit from the event. Sun Tiantian played her rain-delayed first
round match against Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. But the Athens
Olympic doubles champion lost it 6-4, 6-4, and now has to pin her
hopes on the doubles matches.
