Chinese women go 3-1 in Beijing Olympics Round 1!

Li Na beat [3] Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-6 6-4

Zheng Jie beat [11] Agnes Szavay 4-6 6-3 7-5

Peng Shuai beat Carla Suarez Navarro 7-5 7-6

Yan Zi lost to [9] Vera Zvonareva 2-6 0-6

With the exception of Yan Zi, all the other 3 chinese players won their first match! I know it may be too early to say that the Chinese girls will achieve a lot in the Olympics, but the 4 weeks' training after Wimbledon is paying off! Li Na took off a Top 4 seed in the first round, while Zheng Jie beat another seed too. Peng Shuai also lost to Carla in Fed Cup, this time she rebounded nicely.

Congratulations Chinese girls and good luck in the next round (and Doubles)!

i am lazy but who do they play next ?. Li Na and Zheng Jie should have winnable matches seeing as they took out the seeds in their section of the draw but who knows Peng Shuai might sneak a win too.

Pretty good considering the fact they were all ranked lower than their opponents. The Olympics magic.
