Peng Shuai is a world-famous tennis player in doubles, having won two Grand Slam women’s doubles titles at the 2014 French Open and 2013 Wimbledon. Earlier this year, she was ranked number one in the doubles rankings.

Peng Shuai has not had a WTA singles title since he started playing professionally in 2001. Previously, this 1 meter 73 tall player’s best achievement at Grand Slam tournaments was only reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open.

But Peng Shuai’s singles career had an unexpected breakthrough at this year’s US Open.

In the first Grand Slam quarterfinals for both players, Peng Shuai easily defeated another phenomenon of this year’s tournament, Belinda Bencic, with a score of 6-2, 6-1, after only about an hour of play.

With a quick defeat against a much more experienced Chinese senior, Bencic could not become the first Swiss female tennis player to reach the US Open semi-finals since Martina Hingis in 2001.

After the match, Peng Shuai said: “My parents always told me to fight to the end and never give up on my career goals.

In the semi-finals, Peng Shuai will have to play against a higher rated opponent – No. 10 seed Caroline Wozniacki.

In the second quarterfinal, Caroline Wozniacki also quickly defeated the 13th seed from Italy, Sara Errani, with a score of 6-0, 6-1.

If he can overcome the `phenomenon` Peng Shuai in the semi-finals, the 24-year-old Danish tennis player will win the right to enter the US Open final for the second time in his career, after becoming runner-up in 2009. Wozniacki currently leads

“This year’s achievement at the US Open is very meaningful to me, especially when I have just gone through many difficult months in both my career and love life.

At this year’s US Open, Wozniacki improved his serve, moved more actively and was more effective with his forehand shots.
