More Shocking Baby Flower UPSET: #187 Wang d #10 Woz or #226 Zhang d #1 Safina

in 2009 5th Slam Beijing #226 Shuai "Serena" Zhang announced herself to the world by shocking SEWTA #1 Dinara Safina 76 75 ... before this Shuai had already taken out top 40 Iveta Benesova

in her previous match, Safina was just taken out by the unknown Kai-Chien "Kelly" Chang in Tokyo so maybe it was not surprising

in 2013 Kuala Lumpur MM #187 Qiang "Qristina" / "Snow White" Wang announced herself to the world by shocking XWTA #10 / former SEWTA #1 Carolina Wozniacki ... this was Qiang's first top 100 win and first XWTA MD win

in her previous match, Karolina Wozniacki dominated the field at XWTA Dubai P470 until losing to the defending champion Kvitova in the SF

which one was more shocking

XWTA GOATs - Henin Li Pierce
XWTA Golden Flower GOATs - Duan Han Liu Lu Peng Wang Xu Yang Zhang Zheng Zhu
XWTA Non-Chinese Faves - Crawford Ivanovic Kvitova Muguruza Riley

I'm sure Qiang Wang will back up this upset as well as Shuai Zhang did

不要拿来随便比较,好不好?
另外,你是不是去网球吧照抄的?不要搬来搬去啦。
当然,你可能看不懂中文。

Nothing significant, both Safina/Caro were/are slamless former #1 ranking trolls & their conquerors, basic scrubs

She was in top 100 for a while but most achievements were in doubles.

Wozniacki's loss...Safina was in terrible form(having had an equally bad loss the week before) and was a month away from her career ending back injury ! Wozniacki was,by many,looking to be playing quite well(only losing to quality/higher ranked players as of late)and expected to be on the verge of a mini comeback.

If only Wang had beaten Vaidisova... then we would have the most accurate depiction of Nicole's career in one result... Wang def Vaidisova.

Zhang def. Safina - Safina was #1 and Wozniacki is #10 and she's slumping.

Wang. Safina's back was barely hanging in by that point. Venus destroyed Safina at Wimbledon, Kvitova squeaked out a win at the USO, everyone was winning a set off of Safina that summer.

Wozniacki losing to Wang is atrocious.
