URUMQI, Northwest China, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- The number one seed Zhang Yining from China overwhelmed Belarus' Viktoria Pavlovich in the first quarterfinal here on Saturday in 2006 Women's Table Tennis World Cup.

Pavlovich was the only European player advancing to the quarterfinals, since she had beaten Hong Kong's Lin Ling in the previous game early this afternoon. Enditem
