Li 1.55 v Wang 2.74
Due to start at 8:30 pm
Wang 1-0 (Jan 18 2022, hard, 2 sets).
Overall win percentages are fairly even. Long term and 12 month hard court win percentages favour Li.
Li reached the semi finals last season. She reached the semi finals in Melbourne in January and won the WTA Tenerife title in October 2021. Also in 2021, she reached the semi finals in Monterrey and semi finals in the Chicago Challenger in August. Those followed a semi final in the Aus Open warm up even and a 3rd round finish at the Aus Open.
Wang reached the 2nd round in WTA Tenerife in October. Her only other main tour success in 2021 on hard was a semi final in Prague in July.
Back Li above 2.00 and remove liability at 1.50.
Update: That was as bad a performance as you’ll see. Li started the match by going 4-0 down and didn’t hold once in the second set. She clearly tanked the match.
Wang won 6-2, 6-1.
