China's tennis player Qiang Wang had made an announcement last month that she would make a donation to the hospitals in Wuhan who were fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Wang had commented that she would make a donation based on her sports performance - saying that she would donate 1000 Chinese yuan for every game she won in her matches on the professional circuit.
The count is out - he Asian player won 45 games on the WTA Tour during February and another 49 games in the Fed Cup Asia Oceania Group 1 ties played in Dubai earlier this month. That makes a total donation of 94 thousand Chinese yuan, which is about 12 thousand euros.
The 28 year old Wang has won two singles titles on the WTA Tour, one singles title on the WTA 125K series, and 13 singles titles and one doubles title on the ITF Circuit. Her best result at a Grand Slam tournament came at the 2019 US Open where she reached the quarterfinals.
On 9 September 2019, Wang reached her highest singles ranking of world No. 12, becoming the second-highest ranked Chinese tennis player in history after Li Na. She pulled off a major upset by defeating eighth seed Serena Williams in three sets, avenging her lopsided loss to the American at the previous US Open before losing in the fourth round.
She is currently ranked No. 29 in the world. The 28 year old has a 7-6 record on the tour this year.
