Ana vs Lepchenko

Ana takes on world No.20 Varvara Lepchencko of the USA in the second round of the China Open in Beijing on Monday. It will be the first meeting between the pair.

Lepchenko is currently enjoying her career-best ranking. She reached the semi-finals in Seoul a week ago and enjoyed a run to the fourth round of the French Open in May.

The 26-year-old, who switched citizenship from Uzbekistan to the United States, reached the second round here thanks to a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova. Ana beat America's Christina McHale 6-3, 6-2.

"I was very happy with how I played in my first match," said Ana. "I served really well, the best I've served in a while.

"One of my goals is to serve much more consistently so I really want to continue this kind of serving in my next match."

The match is scheduled to begin at 7.30pm local time (1.30pm Central European Time; 7.30am Eastern Time) on the Lotus Court. Click here for live point-by-point scoring from the National Tennis Center.
