Xinyu Wang v En-Shuo Liang Head to Head
This is their second meeting on the WTA Tour with the last one taking place in the 2020 WTA Hua Hin. Liang won that match 6-3, 6-0.
Liang Makes Most of her Chance
20-year-old En-Shuo Liang started her journey in the Prague Open as a qualifier where she lost to Urszula Radwanska in the final qualifying round in straight sets. However, she got the Lucky Loser ticket to the main draw, making it one of the only three times that Liang has reached this stage on the WTA Tour in 2021.
The other two instances being the French Open and WTA Dubai where she won all of her qualifying games, only to lose in the first round.
In the opening match in Prague, she defeated Conny Perrin 6-3, 6-4, to deliver her best run on the tour since her second-round feat in Hua Hin last year.
The Taiwan-born player also featured in a few ITF tournaments but didn’t win any of her opening rounds, at least in the past few months. At the start of the season, Liang did reach the quarterfinal in an ITF event in Egypt but couldn’t make much of it thereafter.
Wang Starts Strong
Xinyu Wang – just a year younger than Liang – started off with a 6-2, 6-2 win over the Swiss Leonie Kung. This is also quite a feat for the Chinese teenager, considering that the last time she had a run like this was in the Miami Open where she fell in round two to Garbine Muguruza.
Wang had a similar run in the preceding event in St. Petersburg and at that time, she lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova. As for her run in other WTA events, she never made it past the early rounds.
The No. 147-ranked player also featured in a few ITF tournaments where she has had much better luck. She was the runner-up in ITF Charlottesville where she was forced to retire in the final set of the match against Claire Liu.
Wang v Liang Prediction and Tip
The two players together won the Australian Open Juniors Doubles in 2018, with Liang winning the singles title as well that year. The two players do hold a great deal of promise and potential and are certainly evenly matched, despite the gap in their rankings.
Expect an entertaining game of tennis.
