|MELBOURNE Layvin Kurzawa Jersey , Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese qualifier Wang Qiang scored a sensational opening round win over American Sloane Stephens Monday on Day 1 of the Australian Open (AO).
Wang knocked out Stephens, an AO semi-finalist three years ago, in straight sets 6-3, 6-3 in one of the biggest upsets of the opening day.
Despite being ranked 76 spots below Stephens, Wang controlled the game from the baseline and quickly went a set up.
The qualifier then broke in the first game of the second set, and broke Stephens another two times to close out the match. Wang became just the second player, in the women's draw Lassana Diarra Jersey , to knock out a seeded player to date, with Russian Margarita Gasparyan beating 17-seed Sara Errani.
The 24-year-old was ecstatic after progressing to the second round, labelling the win the best of her career.
"(Stephens') is a good player ... I just tried my best," Wang told reporters post-match.
"It's was my first time playing at Hisense (Arena), so (I was) a little bit nervous."
Wang was left blushing after a reporter compared her impressive forehand action to two-time Grand Slam champion and compatriot Li Na.
Stephens was not so jovial when she spoke to reporters following her early exit, but credited Wang and suggested her challenger's lead-up form may have proved the difference.
"She's played all this week, three solid matches Giovani Lo Celso Jersey ," Stephens, 22, told reporters on Monday.
"She played a really good match and I wish her well in the future."
Wang will fancy her chances against her second round opponent Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany, who had not progressed past the first round of the AO until Monday's 7-6 (7-3), 2-6, 6-1 win over Spain's Lourdes Domínguez Lino.
Elsewhere, China's other hopefuls had a day to forget.
Debuting in her first Grand Slam Alphonse Areola Jersey , Wang Yafan was able to sneak a set off Greece's Maria Sakkari, but ultimately lost 6-4, 1-6, 6-3.
"This is my first time to join the tournament officially. I am really happy to participate in this world class game and play against top players," she told reporters with the aid of a translator.
"I was really looking forward to the match before the game and was a little bit nervous of course."
Earlier, Wu Di - China's only player in the men's draw - became the first player eliminated.
Austin Krajicek of the United States comprehensively outplayed his 24-year-old opponent, winning in straight sets 6-4 Goncalo Guedes Jersey , 6-1, 6-3 on Court 5 earlier on Monday.
Krajicek, who is ranked 138 spots ahead of his Shanghai counterpart, smashed 13 aces and 29 winners past Wu, and also hit 12 less unforced errors.
Wu said he was confident he had the game to compete among tennis' elite despite the straight sets drubbing.
"It's my third try to get past the first round here - I'm feeling not that happy," Wu told reporters on Monday after his disappointing loss.
"But I think I'm a good player and hope I can go further (than the first round)."
Wu, China's third-highest ranked player on the ATP Tour at 240 Thomas Meunier Jersey , had never made it past the first round of any Grand Slam, and didn't fair any better in his third appearance at the Australian Open against the American.
Krajicek equaled his best performance at the Australian Open, progressing to the second round for the second consecutive year.
He will now play Japan's Kei Nishikori, Asia's highest-ranked player, in the second round.
Despite a tough first round draw, Nishikori cruised past Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-4, 6-3 Angel Di Maria Jersey , 6-3.
The match shaped as a tricky opening game for the No.7 seed, with his No.32 opponent just missing out on a seed at the first Grand Slam of the year.
But the 26-year-old kept his quest for a fifth straight apperence in the tournament's second week alive, winning inside of two hours.
BRASILIA, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- A letter sent Monday to embattled Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff by her deputy revealing an appalling rift has deepened the country's political crisis.
In the letter, Vice President Michel Temer, head of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB), the biggest party in Rousseff's governing coalition Kylian Mbappe Jersey , describes a series of events in the last five years that show how Rousseff, who is facing impeachment, has "never trusted" him or his party.
While Temer's letter was sent to Rousseff confidentially, it was leaked to the press from within the president's office, though it remains unclear by whom.
Rousseff and her collaborators had hoped that Temer would speak out publicly against the impeachment proceedings. But that did not happen.
On Monday, Rousseff stressed that Temer had her full confidence, only hours before she received the letter.
Although Temer did not suggest in the letter that the PMDB would leave the coalition led by Rousseff's Workers' Party Marco Verratti Jersey , the letter will throw a wrench into the way the PT has planned to deal with impeachment proceedings.
Until now, the government has viewed it highly unlikely that the Chamber of Deputies will vote in favor of impeachment as the opposition will need the help of third parties to succeed. But with this attitude from Temer, who currently leads the PMDB, the way how its members will vote is uncertain.
Temer's distancing himself from Rousseff has been anticipated by the recent resignation of Eliseo Padilha as minister of civil aviation. Padilha is considered to be a close political ally of Temer and his departure was seen as the potential start of the the PMDB's siding with the opposition to impeach Rousseff.
The political horse-trading in Brasilia has polarized political figures across the country.
Leonardo Picciani, the PMDB's leader in the Chamber of Deputies, on Tuesday slammed Temer. However, Picciani Marquinhos Jersey , who has been a staunch defender of Rousseff, is under pressure to resign.
