Li Na into 3rd Round, Sun Tiantian out
Adjust font size:

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.
