[Photo/Agencies]PARIS — With Wang Qiang beaten by former champion Francesca Schiavone on Tuesday, all four Chinese players have been stopped in the first round of the French Open tennis tournament.Wang, ranked 102nd in the world, was dominant in the first set, broke the 2010 champion twice to win 6-3, but the 35-year-old Schiavone, who has slipped to 92nd, fought back to take the next two sets 6-3, 6-4 after two hours and nine minutes.It was the Chinese players first match at Roland Garros and at 23 she has learned it is too difficult to emulate compatriot Li Nas achievement at the red clay Grand Slam event.”I was very excited and nervous,” Wang said. “After winning the first set, I had thought I could win it but made too many errors at the crucial moment.””In China, I dont have any chance to play on clay. I just found it very different from playing on hard court.”Li, who defeated Schiavone in the 2011 French Open final, may be very much disliked by the press and tennis fans because of her hypocritic and reluctant nature, but is still Chinas best product in tennis, winning nine WTA titles including two Grand Slam crowns before retiring last year.Wang was the last Chinese player to exit at this years tournament, following Peng Shuai, Zhang Shuai and Zheng Saisai.Peng, ranked 24th, is Chinas top player but has been plagued with a serious back injury since early this year, retiring in the first round trailing Slovenias Polona Hercog 6-0, 3-0.The 29-year-old, who reached her first Grand Slam semifinals in last years US Open, will have a back surgery later and miss the rest of the season, putting her career in doubt.Previous Page1 2 3 4 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesFrench Open highlightsFour Chinese women players earn French Open spotsFrench Open unveils 2015 poster designed by Chinese artistPeter Chan to film Li Na biopicChinese tennis player Li Nas life story to become a filmLi Na named Laureus exceptional award winnerPhotoPyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay kicks offTokyo marks 1,000 days until 2020 Olympic GamesFed Express eclipses his old foe Rafa againChinese sprinter Su Bingtian and wife hold wedding ceremony in hometownLi Na tastes local delicacy during WTA Wuhan OpenPlayer party held for 2017 WTA Wuhan OpenMost PopularWhats HotCurry suffers injury scare as Rockets avoid sweepHighlightsSharapova booed after win, China suffer duo blows at Roland GarrosBayern Munich celebrates 25th Bundesliga titleUS beats Cuba 9-4 in wrestling exhibition in Times SquareLate penalty stuns Guangzhou EvergrandeSpecialLi Na retires from tennis17th Asian GamesUS OpenNanjing Youth Olympics…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
