QF: πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ Qiang Wang vs πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί Samantha Stosur
Qiang Wang and Sam Stosur will go head-to-head for the first time when they meet at the quarter-final stage in Hong Kong on Friday evening. Wang has had a very solid season and has been fairly consistent on hard courts throughout the year. Conversely, Stosur has struggled on hard courts of late but does enter this match fresh off a confidence boosting three set win over Agnieszka Radwanska, one of the Australian’s biggest wins on a hard court this year. Can Stosur keep her Hong Kong run going or will Wang be too solid?

Samantha Stosur is another big contender heading into Roland Garros 2017. The former runner-up has always excelled in Paris, reaching at least the semi-final stage on four previous occasions. Stosur arrives in Paris on the back of a much-needed confidence boost in Strasbourg where she defeated Daria Gavrilova in three sets to win the title. Stosur has the ability to compete with anyone of this surface and should get her campaign off to a good start when she meets Kristina Kucova in the first round on Monday in Paris.
