Istomin and Wang take big step toward Tokyo 2020

28 August 2018

Denis Istomin and Wang Qiang took a significant step towards qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Tennis Event after winning singles gold medals at the Asian Games on Saturday.

As part of new qualification criteria announced by the ITF in February, players have the chance to earn their place in the Olympic Tennis Event through success at one of the regional multi-sport games, including the 2018 Asian Games and 2019 African and Pan American Games.

Istomin, of Uzbekistan, and Wang, of China, seized that chance, with the former defeating China’s Wu Yibing in the men’s singles final in Palembang, Indonesia, last week, and Wang overcoming Zhang Shuai in the women’s singles final.

As a result of their triumph, they will qualify for one of six Continental Qualification places in each of the men’s and women’s singles events at Tokyo 2020, provided their ranking is within the Top 300 on the singles rankings of 8 June 2020, and provided the quota for that nation has not yet been filled by four direct acceptances.

Each singles draw in the tennis event at Tokyo 2020 will comprise 64 players, with a maximum of four players per nation. There will be 56 direct acceptances as at previous Games, and eight ITF places, including the six Continental Qualification places.

Updates of week no.5 ended 2019.7.14 after Wimbledon.

Zhang Shuai leads singles with 487 points and Xu Yifan 1362 points in doubles.

The fact that Wang Xinyu having 150 points in third position shows the weakness in singles. With only 12 points, Zheng Saisai should better return to play ITFs.

By the way Wang Qiang has already satisfied the minimum 300 in ranking for her Continental Qualification place. Her 185 points are sufficient to be ranked better than 300. (Refer to Yuan Yue's recent rankings 278 to 281 with 183 points)

Updates of week no.8 ended 2019.8.04 after Zheng Saisai won the San Jose singles title. Her team reached SF there too.

The weakness in singles is revealed by the fact that Wang Xin Yu is still in no. 3 position.
