Naperville Central senior Tiffany Chen played like a former state singles champion on the first day of the state girls tennis tournament.
Chen on Thursday cruised through the first three rounds, losing only one game in those three matches.
Chen, the 2013 state champion and third-place finisher in 2014 and the top seed in 2015, will continue Friday in the fourth round at Buffalo Grove High School. She will play Angelina Ye of Sycamore. Ye went three sets to advance against Gaby Schoenberg of Grant in her third-round match.
