Ricardo Goulart's volley gave Hebei a 10th minute lead before Guoan midfielder Renato Augusto made it 1-1 with a glorious chip in the 28th minute.
18-year-old Lorenzo Musetti of Italy, who had upset three-time Grand Slam winner Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland and Japan's top player Kei Nishikori in the tournament's opening two rounds, lost to Dominik Koepfer of Germany 6-4, 6-0.
But the biggest surprise was the inclusion of 19-year-old Menino, who can play at right-back or in midfield. The Brazil under-20 player was only promoted to the Palmeiras first-team squad in January and has made just nine league appearances for the club.
Zaha's solitary goal a week ago gave Palace a 1-0 win at home to Southampton, and he was on target twice more to produce the surprise of the weekend.
