Chinese tennis star Qinwen Zhang will work with well-known Belgian coach Wim Fissette. Fissette had coached many former world number ones including Victoria Azarenka, Kim Clijsters, Simona Halep, Angelique Kerber, and Naomi Osaka.
Wim Fissette has turned around the fortunes of many top players. Zhang reached the fourth round of the French Open in 2022 but has struggled since then. With the new partnership, Zheng hopes to become the first Chinese grand slam champion since Li Na.
To date, Qinwen Zhang has won one WTA Challenger title but has not won a WTA title. She reached a peak ranking of world number 19 in 2023.
Fissette reached a career-high singles ranking of 1291 in 1999. But he has been a fantastic coach and has guided many players to their personal best grand slams and other significant events.
