NEW YORK, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) — China’s Peng Shuai, seeded 13, edged off 19th seed Julia Goerges of Germany 6-4, 7-6 (1), advancing into the last 16 of U.S. Open on Friday.
Peng, who reached the fourth round in both the Australia Open and Wimbledon, extended her hot form and accomplished personal best at the Flushing Meadow, eliminating her first three opponents all in straight sets.
Peng was broken at the opening game, but returned two breaks as the match moved on to win the first set in 6-4.
It was again Peng that was broken in the first game of second set, allowing a double fault, but the Chinese just step up the attack and pulled out a break in the subsequent game, forcing a 1-1.
Peng missed one match point in the 10th game and failed to take another three match point in the 12th game, but the German managed to hold on and prolonged the match into tiebreak.
Peng put on a dominant play in the tiebreak and soon built up a 6-1 lead and wrapped it up with an ace. 英]语;啦 英语体育新闻http://WWW.YinGYU.La/Y/yingyuxinwen/tiyuxiaoxi
