Defending champion Wang Qiang defeated Zhang Shuai 6-3 6-2 in a thrilling all-Chinese final at the 18th Asian Games, held in the Jakabaring Sports Complex.
Winning the women's singles event, Qiang has successfully earned the ITF Wildcard entry for Tokyo Olympics 2020. This comes as an extremely exciting opportunity for the Chinese player; because she has often credited Japan with her growth.
However, the build-up towards Tokyo 2020 will be an interesting road for the World No. 52 touted to be the next 'Li Na'; as all the top seeds will be gearing up for one of the most coveted titles of Tennis.
