PARIS Nike Air Force 1 Off White UK , June 2 (Xinhua) -- Zhang Shuai had to say goodbye to 2017 French Open after losing to the eighth-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-5 in women's singles third round here on Friday, meaning that none of Chinese women's tennis players stayed alive in the singles event.

Zhang set her personal best at Roland Garros by reaching the last 32 with two victories over unseeded players, before facing tougher challenge from the two-time Grand Slam singles winner Kuznetsova.

Zhang suffered a break early in the first game with a poor backhand attack, before both players traded advantage to level the score at 4-all.

They went on to force a tiebreak in the first set Nike Air Max 90 Off White UK , where Kuznetsova took the initiative at 5-1, while Zhang won three points in a row to bounce back.

However, the No. 32 seed Zhang still failed to nail the victory as she lost 7-5 in the tiebreak.

A crucial break in the ninth game of the second set earned Zhang a 6-4 win, but she was much restrained by her Russian opponent's high-quality attack and tireless running, as Kuznetsova built a 4-1 lead in the decisive set.

The match went in a controversial manner when Kuznetsova led 5-3 and two players tied at 15 in the ninth game. Zhang's hit was ruled outside by the referee after an on-site inspection, and her challenge was later waved off.

Tears began to fall down on Zhang's face. The Chinese top-ranked player had to hide them with a towel from a ball boy.

Zhang made her quick adjustment when trailing 15-40 Off White Nike UK , as she saved two match points from Kuznetsova, breaking to pull one game back, before continuing to hold her serve for a 5-5 tie.

Leading 6-5, Kuznetsova had another two match points in the 12th game. After a backhand attack went out, Zhang stopped her quest for a last 16 berth in the tournament.

China's Duan Yingying and Peng Shuai moved into last 16 of women's doubles with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Russian duo of Daria Kasatkina and Irina Khromacheva.

"My partner has little experience in the doubles event. I felt that she was sort of nervous in the first round Nike Air Presto Uncaged UK , but she improved a lot in the second round. However, that proved nothing about our chances of winning the title here," said Peng.

"It's a good start, and a good experience. We will just focus on our next match," she added.

Xu Yifan and Frenchman Fabrice Martin lost to French duo of Chloe Paquet and Benoit Paire 6-2, 5-7 Nike Presto Ultra Flyknit UK , 10-5 in the first round of mixed doubles.

BEIJING, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- FIFA presidency candidate Jerome Champagne said he would like to be a reformist to lead the world soccer governing body through the crisis.

The 57-year-old Frenchman spoke to Xinhua by phone before FIFA announced the five candidates on Tuesday, which also included Gianni Infantino, Prince Ali bin al Hussein Nike Air Max 270 UK , Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al Khalifa and Tokyo Sexwale.


Champagne, a FIFA consultant and director of international relations for 11 years (1999-2010), is aiming to return to the organization which has been in a deepening crisis since May 2015.

"Football is for everyone, this sport can not be like basketball, football should never be centered in one league," said Champagne Nike Air Max 98 UK , whose motto "HOPE FOR FOOTBALL" appears on his official campaign website.

"People all around the world have the right to play football, that is why I pick up this campaign".


Champagne said the main task for next FIFA president should be "rebalance the game in a globalized 21st century".

"The imbalances in football today are our greatest challenge. They are endangering the promise of our sport - its universal nature and the opportunity that it gives everyone to play and to win," he said.

Champagne said there are huge gaps in the development of the game between countries, and the ever-expanding globalization has widened these gaps.

"Twenty-six years ago, Europe was divided, but football was united. Today it is not possible Nike Air Max 97 Undefeated UK , all the good clubs are in western Europe," he said.

"India spent millions of euros to get the TV right of the English Premier league, but the English Premier League invested zero in Indian football," said Champagne.

"Every country should have its own strong leagues," he added.

Champagne said should he be elected, he would increase development funds and build more fields in less developed countries.

The Frenchman also emphasized the importance of women's football Nike Air Max 97 UK , saying it was necessary to establish a quota system for women's representation in all football institutions.

"FIFA Women's World Cup, which stared from China, has been proven to be successful, then why not a World Cup for clubs?" he said.


Champagne, who left FIFA in 2010 but didn't leave football, has been considered as a reformist.

The former FIFA official said it was key to apply the highest standards of transparency Balenciaga Speed Trainer White UK , such as publishing the salaries of president and top officials and ensuring open bidding for contracts.

He insisted that inside FIFA, the role of national associations has been underestimated and should be strengthened.

"It is necessary to strengthen the role of national associations, who are the only members of FIFA," Champagne said.

The Frenchman also agreed to apply bolder measures t.
