Only YE No.1 she has secured is the Aussie one. There are still over 2000 points in play for world No.1, so she is far from it. Watch out for boring Pliskova to have deeper YEC and snatch it from Ash.A commanding performance by Saba. She was in her element, dictating, bossing the number one. Ash wasn't bad at all, clearly still in good form, yet to no avail against Aryna, who is becoming the Aussie's bugaboo. Ash is probably still happy though — given that she may have done enough to secure the YE №1 (together with a few points in Beijing)
That's a real stretch buddyShe really comes to life whenever she plays in China! I guess she's a sort of foreigner version of Qiang Wang, despite not getting half of the mocking despite having far better results in this country than anywhere else as well.
2/3 of her titles (possibly 3/4 if she wins tomorrow) and half of her finals have come in China, including by far the biggest one she's ever won. Wang as well has several good results elsewhere (this year in particular have all come in America: USO QF, Miami QF, IW R4), but despite that she's still considered a China specialist only by many people. If that's the criterion, why not Sabalenka as well?That's a real stretch buddy
In the last 2 seasons she has:
2 titles in China (one being an International)....she's had 1 outside (Premier).
No other finals in China..... 3 outside China (2 being Premier)- 1 other final in China prior to 2018.
Her biggest result in China- Premier title Wuhan, Bejing P5 QF....outside Eastbourne title and Cincinnati SF.
Top 10 wins in China, 4.......Top 10 wins anywhere else, 6.
You would have better off saying, she's a hardcourt specialist , where in her hardcourt results are far better than her results on any other surface.
