I wouldn't be suprised if Zheng beat Anna C. Yan prolly has a shot at Dechy, and Li at Serena.

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Pretty tough matches, but I could see Zi Yan taking out Nathalie. Yan has been playing awesome tennis lately and Dechy has had little match practice as well as injury concerns.

If there were still quality points, this could be considered a great opportunity for some of them, but now it is just bad luck.

Well. Sadly they can blame this ranking system and the Chinese FED for having a bad draw.
There's no way 2-3 of the Chinese players wouldn't have been seeded if they played a normal schedule.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Faith! Come on, Na Li and Zi Yan are very capable of upsetting their opponents. Tian Tian has a shot too. My heart tells me Jie will win.
