Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai from Tianjin beat Sichuan's Yan Zi 6-0, 6-1 on Monday for the women's singles final at the 11th Chinese National Games.

"I am surprised and happy to achieve such results," said Peng Shuai, third seed of the singles event after Li Na and Zheng Jie.

"I feel more grateful to the people who support and help me. I will hold on to the next matches. And then I will have a rest after the tournament," said Peng.

Peng has become the top favorite to win the title after Chinese number one Li pulled out of the tournament due to injury and Zheng's early exit.

Peng, already winning two golds at the team event and the mixed doubles, will also have a chance to win the women's doubles that is to kick off later on Monday.
