NANCHANG, China - Wang Qiang was Wednesday's sole winner at the Zhonghong Jiangxi International Women's Open as the weather played havoc with the schedule.

Heavy rain saw most of the matches cancelled or forced indoors, with Wang's 6-1, 7-6(2) second round victory over Noppawan Lertcheewakarn the only one to be completed outside.

Wang has enjoyed a productive campaign on the ITF Circuit, picking up a couple of titles and climbing back into the Top 200. In the opening round she upset No.7 seed Duan Ying-Ying and she continued in this rich vein of form against Lertcheewakarn, racing through the opening set in barely half an hour.

Lertcheewakarn put up a sterner test in the second, coming back from a break down on three occasions and saving five match points before finally succumbing in the tie-break.

Should the rain relent, Thursday's bumper schedule will see top seed Peng Shuai, Misaki Doi and Zheng Saisai all on court as they attempt to join Wang in the quarterfinals.
