What Happened at the 2019 WTA Shenzhen?
Aryna Sabalenka, the top seed, went on to clinch the title by beating Alison Riske in three, hard-fought sets in the final. This was after both these players had no trouble in their respective semifinals, beating Wang Yafan and Vera Zvonareva to make it to the final.
Interestingly, the only other seeded player bar Sabalenka who made it to the Shenzhen Open quarterfinal last year was Maria Sharapova and it would be interesting to see if she participates in the tournament yet again. Sharapova has had her injury issues but the signs of a return seem good given she has opted to feature at the Mubadala Tennis Championships.
