Zheng Qinwen joins in impromptu karaoke to celebrate Zhengzhou’s victory

When will the new single be released? Following her victory at the WTA 500 in Zhengzhou, the emerging tennis sensation Zheng Qinwen celebrated a significant win on home soil with an impromptu karaoke session.

In the final on Sunday, she came back from a set down to defeat the 2021 Roland Garros champion, Barbora Krejcikova, with a score of 2-6, 6-2, 6-4, securing her second career title to add to her first win in Palermo on clay in July. Zheng delivered an impressive performance in the match, hitting 10 aces and 30 winners. However, she also hit all the right notes during the post-match trophy presentation, serenading the fans with a Chinese song, as humorously captioned by the WTA’s social media admin.

This musical moment was a fitting tribute as Zheng had previously shared her love for karaoke, along with rollercoasters, as her favorite off-court pastimes. She mentioned, “Mostly I sing Chinese songs, slower songs. I also do some Chinese rap. I maybe only sing three or four English songs. For the most part, it’s Chinese.”

Zheng’s victory marked her as the third Chinese player to win a title at the WTA 500 level or higher. In a historic year for Chinese tennis, she joined Zhu Lin and Wang Xiyu as 2023 became the first year when three Chinese women secured at least one WTA singles title in the same season.

Reflecting on her win, Zheng expressed her happiness, stating, “When I was on the court finishing the last point, I was feeling super happy. All the crowd yelling for me, they supported me in full. In that moment, the feeling was indescribable.”
