Zheng Jie Advances to Third Round
- 30 August 2012
On Day 3 of the US Open, No. 28 seed Zheng Jie (EZONE Xi 98, PTGSPN) faced Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round. The EZONE Xi player showed very solid performance throughout the match and exploited opportunities to break, converting four of five break points. Jie defeated her opponent in straight sets, 6-3 6-1 and advanced to the third round steadily. It’s her third time playing in the third round of US Open, and we hope that Jie will make a new record in this tournament.
In men’s singles, 2011 US Open champion Lleyton Hewitt (VCORE 95D) met Tobias Kamke in the first round, winning the tough match by 4-6 6-2 6-1 6-4. Lleyton played persistently and his spirited performance brought victory, despite losing in the first set. It was Lleyton’s first time in three years winning the opener of the US Open.
