The 25-year-old Chinese woman is not at all impressed with the results at the start of the current season. Yafan Wang holds the sixth tournament with a negative balance of wins and losses 3-5.
Representatives of the country of the heavens opened the year at a home competition in Shenzhen, where she lost to the strong Kazakh woman Elena Rybakina in the 1/8 finals (3:6, 4:6). Then she lost at the start of Hobart, Australian Open, Hua Hin and Acapulco.
Yafan Wang was finally able to interrupt an unsuccessful series of defeats in this tournament, confidently sorting out in the first round with Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena Vecino (6:4, 6:4). Then it turned out to be stronger in the 1/8 finals in the intense struggle of the Australian Astra Sharma (7:6, 4:6, 6:3).
The quarter-final is the best result of the 21-year-old Czech at this tournament, taking into account two previous performances. Bouzkova made her debut here in 2018, not finding arguments at the start of the main grid against the Hungarian Timea Babos (3:6, 4:6). Marie frankly failed in Monterrey last season, losing in qualification to the little-known Japanese Hiroki Kuvate (6:3, 4:6, 4:6). Moreover, it was considered a clear favorite.
Czech is now on the 57th line in the world ranking, which began the current season. Marie holds the sixth tournament in 2020, with statistics of wins and defeats to date 7-5.
Bouzkova unsuccessfully played at the Australian Open, without creating any problems at the start of the current winner Japanese Naomi Osaka (2:6, 4:6). Then she reached the quarterfinal of the modest tournament in the hall in Nicholasville, where she lost to the Canadian Francoise Abanda in a tense struggle (7:6, 6:7, 4:6).
The Czech woman was in Acapulco last week, losing unexpectedly at the start in three sets to German Tatjana Maria (4:6, 6:1, 2:6).
