Li, Zheng on track for final

CHINESE players Zheng Jie and Li Na are on track to meet in the Monterrey Open final after each won in straight sets on Friday.

Fourth-seeded Zheng, yet to drop a set in Monterrey, Mexico, knocked out seventh-seeded Gisela Dulko of Argentina 6-3, 6-2 in the quarterfinals only two months after losing to Dulko in straight sets in Hobart, Australia.

To reach her first final in three years, Zheng will have to go through sixth-seeded Iveta Benesova, who beat Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 7-5, 6-4 and moved ahead 3-2 in matchups with her younger Czech compatriot.

Unseeded Li, who ousted top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland to start the new claycourt tournament, beat Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 6-3, 7-6 (3).

She'll meet second-seeded Marion Bartoli of France, who fought back to beat American qualifier Vania King 2-6, 6-2, 6-3.
