Mertens knows everything on the court. After all, she expertly acts on counterattacks, because she is distinguished by a high speed of movement on the court and the ability to hold the ball for a long time. She succeeds in doing this thanks to a stable forehand and cut blows.
The Belgian in each mast first tries to destroy the opponent’s game, and then finish it off. But Elise does not know how to attack and play the first number, if she tries to do this, then she makes many unforced errors.
In the 2019 season, Mertens, in the Doha-Dubai tournament mix, took the title in the first tournament. This year the Premier 5 category tournament is held in Dubai (cities alternate during tournaments). Very big points for Mertens and very important two coming weeks.
For the current season, Mertens was marked by quarter-finals in Shenzhen and Hobart, the fourth round in the Australian Open. At the same time, the tennis player did not always play stably. In the last two matches, the national team in the Federation Cup against Diyas (1-6, 6-2, 6-1) and Putintseva (6-1, 7-6) in each match there were recessions in the game Mertens.
It’s difficult to play against any rival against Qiang because in every match she plays only the second number. The Chinese woman returns all the balls that fly in her direction and the harder she hits, the more she interrupts back.
It is rare to see that Wang seizes the initiative and dictates his own rules since she has neither powerful power nor strength in the blows. And it takes its due to speed, stamina, and perseverance.
I remember in the current season the 28th racket of the world Qiang Wang a loud wins at the Australian Open over Serena Williams (6-4, 6-7, 7-5). The tennis player reminded me that she was not just in the top 30, but last year she was close to getting into the top 10.
After entering the fourth Australian Open, Qiang Wang played in a tournament in Hua Hin. She won two fights, in the quarterfinals (at the same time as Svitolina) she lost her match to the little-known Kung (5-7, 6-4, 4-6) and moved to Dubai in advance for a more prestigious tournament.
