Pennetta awaits in Beijing

Pennetta awaits in Beijing

Ana has been drawn against world No.32 Flavia Pennetta in the first round of the China Open, which begins in Beijing on Saturday.
 
Italian Pennetta reached the US Open semi-finals earlier this month and has a career-best ranking of 10.
 
If she overcomes the challenge of the 31-year-old, Ana will take on either Monica Puig or a qualifier in round two of the 60-woman, $5,185,625 event.
 
Third seed Agnieszka Radwanska is a likely third round opponent, while seventh seed Angela Kerber could await in the quarter-finals.
 
Possible semi-final opponents include No.1 Serena Williams and No.6 Caroline Wozniacki.
 
The leading seeds in the bottom half of the draw, whom Ana cannot face until the final, are No.2 Victoria Azarenka, No.4 Na Li, No.5 Sara Errani and No.9 Jelena Jankovic.
