Madrid: It was a bad day for two of three Chinese tennis players at Madrid Masters as both Li Na and Zheng Jie lost their first round matches.

Zheng Jie, ranked 49th in the world, lost 2-6, 3-6 to Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova on Sunday. Jie never really got into the game against a player who had won six of their seven previous meetings. Although she had triumphed the last time they had played, she was unable to repeat the feat, reports Xinhua.

Jie was able to put a good percentage of her first serves in but Kuznetsova had few problems returning and took half of her service points.
