"I played very well up to 4-0 in the third, but I was too eager to win," admitted Peng. "I forced my shots and made a lot of unforced errors.

"But I'm very happy to have fought back to win. It's a good experience for me, winning a difficult match like this."

She added: "Playing in China makes me more nervous, there's a lot of pressure on me."

Peng will Friday face off against German Anna-Lena Groenfeld, placed into the draw with a bye after second seed Lindsay Davenport failed to appear this

week due to injury.

Groenfeld reached the quarter-finals with a win over Japan's Ai Sugiyama.

Wednesday's run of local success is yet another sign of the Chinese women's tennis explosion which threatens to rival the current Russian boom in the game within a few seasons.
