謝淑薇本周來到北美硬地男女共站的辛辛那提,首輪直落二拍下世界第15中國一姐王薔,今晨先出戰女單次輪,以7:6(11:9)、6:3擊敗從會外賽晉級的美國24歲女將Brady。下輪對手將是重返球后的大阪直美。

After arriving this week for the Cincinnati Masters, Hsieh Su-Wei challenged China’s Wang Qiang,15th among the world’s best female tennis players, and won in the second set, followed by another victory with 7-6 (11-9), 6-3 against 24 year-old Brady. Hsieh will now face Naomi Osaka, the superstar from Japan, in the round of 16. 

過去謝淑薇對上大阪直美僅1勝3敗,除了首度交手在2015年,其餘都在今年,最近一次交手是司徒加特網賽,謝淑薇直落二吞敗,謝淑薇生涯首度擊敗大阪直美是3月的邁阿密大師賽,鏖戰3盤逆轉勝出。

Hsieh has only won against Naomi once out of three games where they’ve faced off, one of which was back in 2015, the other two exchanges occurring this year. The most recent encounter between the two rivals was during the Stuttgart Open, when Hsieh lost two sets, but defeated her for the first time in March at the Miami Open after fighting hard for three sets.

女雙接著登場,「台捷組合」在7月的溫網奪下女雙冠軍,來到此站重新合拍,榮膺頭號種子,首輪輪空,次輪以6:4、6:3力退愛沙尼亞Anett Kontaveit/希臘Maria Sakkari。明天8強將對上第8種子捷克Lucie Hradecka/斯洛維尼亞Andreja Klepac。

After previously coming together in July for the Women’s Doubles, the dynamic “Taiwan-Czech Duo” were first up, posed for a photo together and handedly defeated Estonian Anett Kontaveit and Maria Sakkari from Greece with a 6-4, 6-3 win. Tomorrow, they will face off against the eighth seed, the Czech Lucie Hradecka and Slovenian Andreja Klepac.
