In April, she recorded her first win on the WTA Challenger Tour, defeating Naomi Broady in order to reach second round of the Zhengzhou Open.

2020-22: First WTA semifinal & major win & third round, top 50

Wang started the year with a win over Sorana Cîrstea at the Shenzhen Open,[8] but then lost to third seed Elise Mertens.[1] However, she failed to reach the main draw of the Australian Open,[1] Wang reached quarterfinals of the Hua Hin Championships, where she defeated world No. 15, Petra Marti?.[9] She followed this up with a semifinal at the Mexican Open; after three wins, she lost to Heather Watson.[10][11]

At the 2022 Australian Open, she recorded her first Grand Slam career match-win, as a wildcard against qualifier Viktória Ku?mová.

She reached a new career-high singles ranking of world No. 103, on 9 May 2022,[12] and made her top 100 debut a month later on 13 June 2022, after reaching her first WTA Challenger final at the Open de Valencia. She made her debut at Wimbledon where she lost in the first round to another debutante at this major, Jule Niemeier.

At the Budapest Grand Prix, she defeated top seed Barbora Krej?íková in the first round and overcame Ana Bogdan in the longest straight-sets match of the year, in 2 hours and 45 minutes in the second round to move to the quarterfinals.[13] As a result, she recorded a new career-high of No. 93, on 18 July 2022.

Notes

  1. ^ The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009-2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012-2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The Premier 5 tournaments were reclassified as WTA 1000 tournaments in 2021.
