Zhang and Gao were silver medalists behind Indonesia's Nova Widianto and Lilyana Natsir at the 2007 BWF World Championships in Kuala Lumpur. They were upset in the round of 16 at the 2008 Beijing Olympics by former world champions Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms. Associated with Ma Jin, Zheng won the Mixed Doubles title at the 2010 BWF World championships.
