MELBOURNE Carmelo Anthony Nuggets Jersey , Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese qualifier Wang Qiang scored a sensational opening round win over American Sloane Stephens Monday on Day 1 of the Australian Open (AO).


Wang knocked out Stephens, an AO semi-finalist three years ago, in straight sets 6-3, 6-3 in one of the biggest upsets of the opening day.


Despite being ranked 76 spots below Stephens, Wang controlled the game from the baseline and quickly went a set up.


The qualifier then broke in the first game of the second set, and broke Stephens another two times to close out the match. Wang became just the second player Allen Iverson Nuggets Jersey , in the women's draw, to knock out a seeded player to date, with Russian Margarita Gasparyan beating 17-seed Sara Errani.


The 24-year-old was ecstatic after progressing to the second round, labelling the win the best of her career.


"(Stephens') is a good player ... I just tried my best," Wang told reporters post-match.


"It's was my first time playing at Hisense (Arena), so (I was) a little bit nervous."


Wang was left blushing after a reporter compared her impressive forehand action to two-time Grand Slam champion and compatriot Li Na.


Stephens was not so jovial when she spoke to reporters following her early exit Alex English Nuggets Jersey , but credited Wang and suggested her challenger's lead-up form may have proved the difference.


"She's played all this week, three solid matches," Stephens, 22, told reporters on Monday.


"She played a really good match and I wish her well in the future."


Wang will fancy her chances against her second round opponent Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany, who had not progressed past the first round of the AO until Monday's 7-6 (7-3) Wilson Chandler Jersey , 2-6, 6-1 win over Spain's Lourdes Domínguez Lino.


Elsewhere, China's other hopefuls had a day to forget.


Debuting in her first Grand Slam, Wang Yafan was able to sneak a set off Greece's Maria Sakkari, but ultimately lost 6-4, 1-6 Will Barton Jersey , 6-3.


"This is my first time to join the tournament officially. I am really happy to participate in this world class game and play against top players," she told reporters with the aid of a translator.


"I was really looking forward to the match before the game and was a little bit nervous of course."


Earlier, Wu Di - China's only player in the men's draw - became the first player eliminated.


Austin Krajicek of the United States comprehensively outplayed his 24-year-old opponent, winning in straight sets 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 on Court 5 earlier on Monday.


Krajicek Tyler Lydon Jersey , who is ranked 138 spots ahead of his Shanghai counterpart, smashed 13 aces and 29 winners past Wu, and also hit 12 less unforced errors.


Wu said he was confident he had the game to compete among tennis' elite despite the straight sets drubbing.


"It's my third try to get past the first round here - I'm feeling not that happy," Wu told reporters on Monday after his disappointing loss.


"But I think I'm a good player and hope I can go further (than the first round)."


Wu, China's third-highest ranked player on the ATP Tour at 240, had never made it past the first round of any Grand Slam Trey Lyles Jersey , and didn't fair any better in his third appearance at the Australian Open against the American.


Krajicek equaled his best performance at the Australian Open, progressing to the second round for the second consecutive year.


He will now play Japan's Kei Nishikori, Asia's highest-ranked player, in the second round.


Despite a tough first round draw, Nishikori cruised past Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-4, 6-3 Thomas Welsh Jersey , 6-3.


The match shaped as a tricky opening game for the No.7 seed, with his No.32 opponent just missing out on a seed at the first Grand Slam of the year.


But the 26-year-old kept his quest for a fifth straight apperence in the tournament's second week alive, winning inside of two hours.
