Su-Wei stands out for its unique style of play. After all, she rarely punches the ball flat, and often tries to cut the ball in every way so that when it falls it can bounce along the most unexpected trajectory.
But this is the main problem of the Taiwanese, because it is important for her to constantly have regular game practice (to feel the ball and the court) in order to perform such attacks. If she does not play at least a few weeks, then she makes many mistakes and does everything for her rivals herself.
Recently, the tennis player went in cycles and did not lose, as at the moment she is one of the best ladies on the tour.
Su-Wei Hsieh, in individual games this season, plays at a weak level, the girl participated in 7 fights, the tennis player managed to become the winner in 2 qualifying matches at the tournament in Dubai. At the start of the season, Su-Wei put together a series of three defeats. The Taiwanese played the last game as part of the first round of the main draw in Dubai, the match was lost to the Croatian Petra Martic (6 / 4,6 / 3). According to WTA, Su-Wei is ranked 40th in the ranking.
Zvonareva is already 35 years old, she was already completing her professional career, but then she suddenly decided to return. For a long time, the tennis player performed with an incredible mood and went from tournament to tournament, thanks to which she returned to the top 100 (for a short time).
But about a year ago, Vera was injured and since then more time has been recovering from new injuries than she appears on the tour. When a Russian woman enters the court, she tries to act as aggressively as possible and not delay the rallies. Zvonareva still boasts a killer and accurate forehand.
Vera Zvonareva this season plays at an average level and does not show high results in tournaments. The Russian woman held 4 fights on the court, in which the athlete was able to win 2 times.
Vera played the last match at the final stage of the qualification of competitions in St. Petersburg, the match was lost to Frenchwoman Alize Korn (3 / 6.4 / 6). The tennis player received a special invitation from the organizers to the tournament in Doha. Zvonareva takes 425 line in the WTA ranking.
