Ashleigh BARTY (AUS) [9] v WANG Qiang (CHN) [11]


Wang Qiang is a debutante at this tournament.

She is the first Chinese woman to advance to the singles final here - and has never lost a final on home soil, currently enjoying a 3-0 record.

Ashleigh Barty reached the semifinals here last year.

The pair have faced each other only once before, and that encounter was earlier this year - in the Strasbourg quarterfinals. The Australian won in straight sets, 7-5, 6-4, on the clay there.
