PARIS, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- Petra Kvitova managed to return to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros for the first time since 2012 after a comfortable 6-2, 6-4 dismissal of China's Zhang Shuai in the opening game on Court Philippe-Chatrier on Monday.
"We played a bit tight at the start as it was our first game, but we never gave up, and finally won the game," Li said.
FC Barcelona have had a promising start to the campaign under new coach Ronald Koeman, scoring seven goals in their opening two matches, with the midfield pairing of Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong giving a solid base for the attacking quarter of Ansu Fati, Leo Messi, Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann.
"If every player can contribute, it will be an easier game for us," she noted.
Once again Getafe is off to an excellent start to the season and although its style of football is not always attractive to watch, it is effective as it showed against Betis in midweek.
But Wu was reluctant to highlight her own performance.
Shaanxi trailed for most of the game, but outscored Wuhan 23-18 in the last quarter to grab the morale-boosting win.
"We had a poor start as our players didn't show enough mentality, but I'm satisfied with the players' performance in the following three quarters," Shaanxi coach Jiang E'Ying commented.
For Chinese sports fans, their demand for sports events was suppressed for nearly half a year.
Li also denied the rumors that China will limit the number of naturalized players in the national team. "Jiang Guangtai and Fei Nanduo did well in the CSL. They also expressed a strong desire to play for the national team. We hope to better know each other through training," he said.
Resentful of refereeing, Wuhan coach Li Xin was given two technical fouls in a row resulting in her ejection early in the last quarter. Wuhan could not truly put a scare into Xinjiang during the second half.
