Analyzing his win over Zhang Zhizhen in Beijing China Open, Zhang Zhizhen said: "overall, I rarely play this kind of player, I mean, top player.
I didn't think too much. I was able to break his serve in the first set. It went very well in the first set. I was surprised. He did very well with his serve in the second set. I didn't have any breakpoints. In the third set, I tried to be more aggressive. Luckily I won the match."
