In addition to Wang Qiang and Zhang Shuai, Zheng Saisai and Wang Yafang ranked in the top 100 respectively, while Peng Shuai ranked 291 in the world and 16th in China.
In general, the women's team has greatly surpassed the men's team in terms of comprehensive ranking and number of players in the 2019 Australian Open. In terms of data, the probability of women's team achieving excellent results in the competition is far higher than that of men's team. However, the men's team also has something to look forward to. We hope that they can create good results and what the final result will be. Let's wait and see.
