DUBAI, UAE - Fresh from shocking Kristina Mladenovic at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, Wang Qiang confessed that WTA World No. 6 Agnieszka Radwanska is her current tennis idol.

"Now Radwanska is my idol," she admitted in her post-match press conference. "Yes, I really like she play tennis."

Wang was speaking to the media after brushing aside the Frenchwoman in the third round, 6-1, 6-4, and she wondered whether her opponent's heroics yesterday against Karolina Pliskova had taken their toll.

"I saw her play last night and she play really well against Pliskova," said Wang. "Yes, today first set she miss so much, and I think she's a little bit tired of last night, yes."

Wang will now play either Anastasija Sevastova or Peng Shuai in the quarterfinals.
