BERLIN, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- Leipzig extended Schalke's winless run to overall 19 games after paving the way for the win with three first-half goals in the third round of the Bundesliga on Saturday.
"We showed our character," Jiangsu coach Ding Tie said. "But after some young players substituted in, the level of our defense went down."
Third seed Elina Svitolina cruised past 27th-seeded Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-4, 7-5 to advance to the next round. Argentinian qualifier Nadia Podoroska extended her stunning run on clay after the restart of the season, as the 23-year-old dispatched Anna Karolina Schmiedlova 6-3, 6-2 to become the first Argentinian women's player to reach the fourth round in Paris since 2011.

Shaanxi's Chen Yanyu was an assist shy of a triple-double with 21 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. Li weighed in with 19 points.
"The quality of our defense slumped in the second quarter, and they pulled away from the match. We can be better than this," Fujian coach Gong Songlin commented. Enditem
