Stuck in the lower part of the main draw since his arrival on the Master’U BNP Paribas, China clinched a beautiful 4th place last year in Lille. A place that the Chinese will want to confirm and perhaps to improve this year in Grenoble.
In 2017, for the first time, China slipped into the last 4 of the Master’U BNP Paribas after a success against Russia. The team of Ren and Lu, Chinese coaches, is on the good way to show the qualifity of university tennis in China. In Grenoble, “the Middle Kingdom” will present itself with the following team: Zhaotai LI, Fajing SUN, ranked 646 at ATP after being 402 in July 2017, Xiaojun DONG men’s side, and Yuheng MA, Yifei YANG and Xiaorong DONG side women.
