Wang Qiang earned her first WTA 125K Series title at the Biyuan Cup Zhengzhou Women's Tennis Open at top seed Peng shuai was forced to retire in the deciding set with the match standing at 3-6, 7-6(3), 1-1.
"I entered this tournament as the second seed, so there was an opportunity for me to win the title," Wang said post-match. "I almost got knocked out in the second round. At that time, I didn't feel as confident as I am today. I'm not quite sure what happened in the second set, but I tried to stay focused and play my game, not making too many mistakes. I knew that she would go for it whenever she had the chance."
