Promising Chinese tennis player Yibing Wu is a big fan of Scot Andy Murray's game-style.

The 18-year-old is eager to take notes from watching the world No. 3.

Former world No. 1 Murray doesn't have many flaws in his game as he also possesses an outstanding mentality.

"It's his shot selection, the way he turns defence into attack, how he changes direction is incredible. I have met him before, very quickly, but I want to learn from him," Wu said of Murray.

Wu is one of the most talented players of his generation.

The 18-year-old conquered Flushing Meadows this past US Open.

The Chinese won the US Open Boys' singles and doubles title with Hsu Yu-Hsiou of Taiwan.

Wu was awarded wildcards into the Chengdu Open and Shanghai Masters following his success in New York.

Wu fell to Brazil's Thiago Monteiro in a three-setter in the Chengdu first round before he lost in his Shanghai opener to Frenchman Gilles Simon.

Wu made a Davis Cup debut in style this past February.

In his so far only Davis Cup match played, Wu beat Jason Jung of Chinese Taipei as Jung was forced to retire the match while 4-1 down in the fifth set.
