Li Na kept the Chinese flag flying at the US Open today (Beijing time), qualifying for the third round.
Li Na kept the Chinese flag flying at the US Open today (Beijing time), qualifying for the third round.

Her 6-0 1-6 6-4 win over Greece's Eleni Daniilidou made her the only one of China's super-six contingent to make it past the second round at Flushing Meadows.

Compatriot Zheng Jie, the 29th seed, fell 7-5 6-3 to Russia's Anastassia Rodionova in another second-round tie.

Zheng's performance was affected by her ankle injury.

The four other Chinese hopes, Peng Shuai, Sun Tiantian, Yuan Meng and Yan Zi, lost in the first round.

It was not the best result from a group of players all ranked in the top 100, but national top-ranker and 24th seed Li at least gave another top performance.

The 24-year-old former badminton player from Wuhan made history at Wimbledon this year when she became the first Chinese player, man or woman, to reach the singles quarter-finals of a grand slam tournament.

And, if her performance against the tall Greek No.1 is anything to go by, she could make further progress here.

Next up for Li is last year's runner-up, Mary Pierce from France.
