Duan Yingying (Chinese: 段莹莹; pinyin: Duàn Yíngyíng; Mandarin pronunciation: [twán.ǐŋ.ǐŋ]; born July 3, 1989 in Tianjin) is a professional Chinese tennis player playing in the ITF Women's Circuit.[1] On April 24, 2017, she reached her highest WTA singles ranking of 60.

Career[edit]

2012[edit]

Starting the year ranked #378 in the world, Duan's ranking would improve significantly to #128 by the year's end. Some of the highlights of her 2012 season included winning 4 ITF titles at the 25k level in Wellington, Changwon, Gimcheon and Goyang. Playing qualifying at the US Open, Duan had her first experience in a Grand Slam tournament. She would win her first qualifying round defeating Réka-Luca Jani, but would fall in the next round to Kirsten Flipkens. She received a wildcard to the 2012 Guangzhou International Women's Open and won her first WTA main draw match defeating Luksika Khumkum in the first round. Duan also achieved her best results in ITF challengers near the end of 2012, reaching the semifinals of 100K+H Ningbo and the finals of 100K Suzhou, losing both matches to top-100 veteran Hsieh Su-wei.

2013[edit]

Duan was due to make her main draw Grand Slam singles debut at Wimbledon, but withdrew to compete in the National Games of China. She made her Grand Slam singles debut in the main draw of the US Open after winning three qualifying matches. She lost to sixth seed Caroline Wozniacki in the opening round. During the televised commentary of her match against Caroline Wozniacki, the commentators compared Duan's game to that of former World No. 1 Lindsay Davenport. They also began referring to her by the nickname of Duan-venport (段文波特) on the Chinese internet.[2][3][4]

2015[edit]

As a qualifier, Duan beat Wimbledon 2014 finalist Eugenie Bouchard 7–6(7–3), 6–4 in the first round of Wimbledon 2015. This match was considered as one of the biggest upset of the tournament. In the second round, Duan lost to Tatjana Maria from Germany in a long three-set match by 6–1, 2–6, 8–10.

2016[edit]

In July, Duan won her first WTA tour title at the Jiangxi International Women's Tennis Open, defeating Vania King in the final by 1–6, 6–4, 6–2.

2017[edit]

Duan had 3 match points against Agnieszka Radwanska at the Shenzhen Open, eventually losing the match. Duan had her best Grand Slam showing to date at the 2017 Australian Open. She defeated Rebecca Sramkova and Varvara Lepchenko to reach the third round, where she lost to former world number 1 and eventual finalist Venus Williams by a scoreline of 6-1 6-0.
