Mertens’ only encounter with Wang came in 2016 when the Belgian was ranked #168, at an ITF in Quanzhou, China. Wang, who was then the higher-ranked player, defeated Mertens in three sets. However, in the meeting, the dynamics have changed, and Mertens is considered the favorite to level up the head-to-head.
Elise Mertens News
Elise Mertens, in the first month of 2018, won ten matches in a row from the first round of the Hobart International to the semifinals of the Australian Open. She also defeated a Top 10 player, Svitolina, on the way to her career’s first slam semifinal.
However, after her exploits in Australia, Mertens has been experiencing a downturn in her performance. A critical loss to Mladenovic at the Fed Cup and early round exits from Doha and Dubai to Cirstea and Bellis, respectively.
This time last year, Mertens was playing in the qualifying rounds of the Indian Wells. Twelve months later, she is debuting in the main draw of the tournament as a seeded player.
Qiang Wang News
Qiang Wang edged past Timea Bacsinszky, who was playing only her second match of the season, in three sets. Although Wang dropped the close second set 4-6, it was still a dominating performance from the Chinese player.
Wang had a slow start to the season with three consecutive first-round losses. However, at Dubai, she won three matches from the qualifying rounds to reach the second round, where she ran into the defending and eventual champion, Elina Svitolina.
