Xiyu Wang and Elena-Gabriela Ruse are scheduled to face each other in the Second round of the 2022 WTA Transylvania Open on October 13.
Xiyu Wang advanced to the second round with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Romania’s Jaqueline Cristian. Wang, who had previously lost in the first round in Tallinn and the first qualifying round in Ostrava, snapped a three-match losing streak in the first round in Cluj Napoca. Wang had a strong run just before departing for Tallinn. She reached the semifinals in Washington after being a lucky loser in the main draw, and she reached the quarterfinals in Granby. The 21-year-old lefty finished the North American swing in the third round of the US Open. Wang was very successful on clay at the lower levels of competition. She reached her first WTA 125 final in Valencia, as well as three ITF finals, but she has yet to win a title this year.
104th in the world Elena-Gabriela Ruse rallied after dropping the first set to defeat Harmony Tan in a two-hour, 36-minute first-round match at the Transylvania Open. This is Ruse’s ninth appearance in the second round of a tour-level event this year. She has yet to make it to the quarterfinals. Seven of her nine first-round victories have come on hard courts, where she is 14-10 this season. Ruse has had a very disappointing season overall, especially after reaching her first two WTA finals and winning her first title in Hamburg last year. She reached a career-high ranking of 51 in May this year, but after a string of poor results, she has dropped out of the top 100.
