Chinese Peng Shuai beat fourth-seed Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 to advance into the US Open third round.


The two players had met four times previously, each of the four going into a third set, reports Xinhua.

"I played her four times and I won only once, and that was in the US Open four years ago," said 28-year-old Peng after her victory Wednesday.

Peng was broken in the very first game, but she managed to break back in the fourth game to tie the score 2-2. Radwanska lost her serve in the eighth game, and Peng took the chance to finish the first set 6-3 after holding her own in the ninth game.

The second set went in favour of Peng. The world number 39 player broke Radwanska in the fifth game to take the lead, and finally sealed the match after winning her third match point.

"Really happy and really excited," said Peng.

"She's very solid player, very consistent from both sides and plays very well from the back," said Radwanska about Peng.

Radwanska would go home for a rest and prepare for the Asian series including Seoul, Wuhan, and Beijing.

Peng is to take on 28th-seeded Italian Roberta Vinci in the third round.
