LONDON, June 10 (Xinhua) -- China's Zheng Saisai beat British No.1 Johanna Konta 6-4, 7-5 in the second round of the WTA Nottingham tournament on Thursday, upsetting the British favorite's joy at breaking into the world's top 20.

Zheng fought back from 2-0 down in the opening set with two breaks of serve and took it in 45 minutes.

Second seed Konta was on course to level the match when she went 4-2 up in the second set, only to relinquish her advantage afterwards and was consigned to defeat.

Konta underwent treatment during the match when she felt uncomfortable in her lower back.

"She played a lot of balls and got a lot of balls back. I think there were a lot of high-quality points," Konta said.

Zheng will encounter Tara Moore in the quarter-finals following the Briton's 6-2, 6-2 defeat of eighth seed Christina McHale.

CANBERRA, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Australian researchers have created a pH-sensitive optical fiber which can distinguish breast cancer tissue from regular tissue in a development which could help surgeons perform better surgeries.

The development could one day prevent the need for follow-up surgery, currently required by up to one in five breast cancer sufferers.

Dr Erik Schartner from the University of Adelaide said on Wednesday that his team's optical fiber works by detecting the different pH levels in the tissue, giving surgeons a better idea of where to cut.

The pH indicator in the tip of the optical fiber emits a different color of light depending on the acidity level of the tissue, while a miniature spectrometer analyses the light and therefore the pH level in real time.

"We have designed and tested a fiber-tip pH probe that has very high sensitivity for differentiating between healthy and cancerous tissue with an extremely simple -- so far experimental -- setup that is fully portable," Schartner said in a statement.

"If the readout shows the tissues are cancerous, that can immediately be removed. Presently this normally falls to post-operative pathology, which could mean further surgery."

"Because it is cost-effective to do measurements in this manner compared to many other medical technologies, we see a clear scope for this technology in operating theaters."

Currently, surgeons rely on the unreliable method of their own judgments to decide how much breast tissue to remove around the cancer, but the researchers believe their new invention could allow surgeons to be much more precise, meaning more of each patient's breast tissue is saved.

"The (current process) is quite traumatic to the patient, and has been shown to have long-term detrimental effects on the patient's outcome," Schartner said.

The optical fiber technology is expected to be used in clinical trials in the "near future."
