MADRID (AFP) - Women's tennis' world No. 2 Li Na secured her place in the third round of the Madrid Open on Tuesday, with a comfortable 6-2, 6-3 win over compatriot Zheng Jie.
Zheng led the head-to-head record between the two 4-3 before the match, but the two-time Major champion has now won the last four meetings between the pair in straight sets and will face 16th seed Sloane Stephens or Petra Cetkovska in the last 16.
