Xu won the Miami Open and the Connecticut Open women's doubles with Dabrowski.[2] She partnered with Dabrowski again in the US Open, with the pair reaching the quarterfinals.

In 2018, the duo won the doubles competition at the Sydney International,[3] and then reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne, just like 2019 at the French Open and US Open. The biggest achievement of the Canadian/Chinese pair was reaching the final of the 2019 Wimbledon Championships.
