Zhang challenges the best

Zhang challenges the best

Chinese star Zhang Shuai is challenging the world's top players at the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai, the Tour's year-end event, which runs through Sunday in the Guangdong city.

The 27-year-old Zhang has had a career-best season. At January's Australian Open she grabbed her first match victory in a Grand Slam tournament after 14 failed attempts and made it all the way to the quarterfinals after upsetting then world No 2 Simona Halep.

Zhang maintained her good form en route to capturing her first career main-draw singles victory in New York after earning her 10th trip to the US Open in August.

"I'm so happy to see myself be competitive in major tournaments and to have many opportunities to challenge and defeat the world's top 20 and even the top 10," Zhang told China Daily.

A wild card entry at Zhuhai, Zhang, currently ranked No 28 in the world, will be up against Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro (No 11) and Switzerland's Timea Bacsinszky (No 18) in the round-robin group stage at the second edition of the tournament.

"I have played against both of those rivals in the past three months, so we will see what progress we've made through this tournament in Zhuhai," Zhang said.

"I really enjoy playing against top players, from whom I can learn a lot, and it is very special for me to play matches in my home country."

With a home court advantage, Zhang has a chance to make it to the semifinals, given that she defeated Bacsinszky at the Rio Olympics and pushed Suarez Navarro to the limit in their most recent match.
