In women’s singles, both EFG HKTA Tour Team athletes, Eudice Chong and Cody Wong, successfully negotiated their way to the third round, with the former saving a match point to advance past WTA No. 540 Zheng Wushuang (Jiangxi) 2-6, 7-5, after her opponent retired with a lower back injury, while the latter was eventually ousted in straight sets by No. 8 seed You Xiaodi (Hubei), a singles bronze medalist in Tianjin four years ago. Wong, 19, had earlier knocked out No. 10 seed and 2017 singles bronze medalist Lu Jia-Jing (Liaoning) with a 7-6(0), 6-4, victory in the first round. Women’s team coach, Karan Rastogi: “She played fearless tennis and did so with a freedom that was excellent to see. Her opponent came back strong in the second set, but Cody stuck to her game and pulled off a good win.”

Chong then faced off against fifth-seeded Wang Yafan (Sichuan) in the quarterfinals. She started off with a double-break 3-0 lead only to see Wang return the favor in the fourth and eighth games to draw even at 4-4. Chong’s response was swift and broke back immediately before she produced a love hold to take the first set 6-4. In the second, a sea-sawing affair ensued until Chong served for the match leading 5-4, but the former WTA No. 47 managed to flip a switch to ward off the HK rep and stayed solid down the stretch to bag the final nine games to win 4-6, 7-5, 6-0, to secure a semifinal spot.

Was there a team event this year for Chinese Nationals?
No team event was held in this year, may be due to Olympics and/or COVID-19.
