Wang Yafan
Chinese

Wang Yafan (Chinese: ; pinyin: Wáng Y?fán; Mandarin pronunciation: [wǎ? jà fǎn]; born 30 April 1994) is a Chinese tennis player.

She has won one singles title and three doubles titles on the WTA Tour, as well as ten singles and six doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit so far. On 4 March 2019, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 49. She also peaked at No. 49 in the doubles rankings on 15 February 2016.

Career

She was born in Nanjing in 1994. Wang Yafan started playing tennis when she was 9-year-old.[1] Wang made her WTA debut at the 2014 Shenzhen Open, partnering Zheng Jie in doubles.[2] The pair won their first-round match against wild cards Sun Ziyue and Xu Shilin,[2] and defeated third seeds Irina Buryachok and Oksana Kalashnikova, before losing to eventual champions Monica Niculescu and Klára Zakopalová in the semifinals.[2]

In September 2014 at the Guangzhou Open, Wang was given a wild card into the singles main draw and advanced to the semifinals, upsetting the top seed and world No. 20 Samantha Stosur in the first round,[3] and qualifiers Petra Marti? and Zhang Kailin along the way. She was knocked out by eventual champion Monica Niculescu.[4]

Playing for China at the Fed Cup, Wang has a win-loss record of 9-2.

Wang made her career breakthrough at the 2018 Miami Open, where she reached the fourth round as a qualifier before losing against tenth seed Angelique Kerber in a very close match.

2019: First WTA title

Wang won her first ever WTA singles title at the Abierto Mexicano in Acapulco where she defeated Sofia Kenin by 2-6, 6-3, 7-5, after being down a set and a break. She achieved her best world ranking of No. 49.

At the Miami Open, she defeated Kristina Mladenovic in the first round. In the second round, she clinched her first victory against a top-ten player by defeating sixth seed and world No. 5 Elina Svitolina in straight sets (6-2, 6-4). She kept on and won against 25th seed and Australian Open semifinalist Danielle Collins by 7-5, 6-1, and reached the fourth round, but then lost to compatriot Wang Qiang in straight sets.
