As one of the hottest rising stars in tennis, Zheng rallied past last year's runner-up Ons Jabeur at the US Open last week to achieve her first win over a top-10 player at a Grand Slam.

Despite losing to world number two Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus in the quarters, Zheng still made a breakthrough in her career by reaching the final eight of a Grand Slam event for the first time.

In July, Zheng won her maiden WTA title at Palermo Open. Known to fans as "Queen Wen", the 20-year-old is now eyeing on the Asian Games.
