PREVIEW & TIPS FOR Thiago Monteiro vs Yibing Wu
This week’s Chengdu and Shenzhen competitions are the two tournaments that officially launch the “Asian Swing” that will last no less than three weeks and culminate in the penultimate Masters of the Year, Shanghai tournament.
The Chengdu tournament was at its second edition, and finalists last year, Karen Khachanov and Albert Ramos Vinolas, came this year to try to defend their points. Next to them is Dominic Thiem, favorite No. 1 of the competition and the fourth player in the hierarchy for the Champions Tour that will take place in mid-November.
The match that we will focus on in the coming moments will be the last scheduled match in Shengdu’s central arena and will feature prominent Brazilian Thiago Monteiro and young Chinese Yibing Wu.
Thiago Monteiro News
Thiago Monteiro (114th place in the world) is, without a doubt, a more experienced player than his opponent when it comes to this level, with the Brazilian accumulating this experience over the last 3-4 seasons when he started to become a more and more constant name in both the Challenger circuit and ATP tournaments. However, Monteiro has always been a slave specialist who has never felt quite at ease when it comes to quick surfaces.
Monteiro is a “born and raised” player on South American slag land and has built his entire career in those conditions. Even if the progress in his game is obvious over the last few years, the Brazilian even managed to hit the top 100 in 2016, his results when it comes to hard does not announce anything. Monteiro played 8 matches this year on the main outdoor hardcore drawings and only one victory against Alexander Dolgopolov a month ago from Winston Salem in an extremely suspicious match was arranged.
The Brazilian is not even accustomed to being in a position to dictate ball exchanges and needs time and patience to build their points, so on fast surfaces and against players who are capable of powerful kicks, Monteiro does not have much many chances.
Thiago Monteiro vs Yibing Wu STATS
Although there is a clear difference between Monteiro and Monteiro when it comes to ATP tournament experience, this is normal because the Chinese youngster has not yet reached the age of 18 and has evolved predominantly in the junior circuit, where he managed to create a name, being the current world leader. Even so, it seems that the title won at the US Open two weeks ago gave Wu great confidence in his game, impressing even in the Shanghai challenger tournament he won without even giving up a set. Although he is not 18 years old, Wu seems to be a very self-masked and extremely mature player in tennis attitude. The Chinese seem to feel great when evolving in front of their supporters and certainly the tribune at Chengdu will be almost full to support one of the great hopes of Chinese tennis for the near future. It will be interesting to see how Wu will manage his first career match on the main board of an ATP tournament.
Yibing Wu News
Yibing Wu (320th place in the world) is a young player who has not yet reached the age of 18 and about whom we will hear many good things in the near future in the ATP circuit.

Wu played in late 2016 and the “Orange Bowl Tennis Championship” final, lost to another former junior world champion, Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic, this one of the most prestigious and most prestigious junior tournaments in the world after tournaments Grand Slam, a competition won in the past by players such as Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Robin Soderling, Marcos Baghdatis or Dominic Thiem.
Obviously, Wu has been ahead of the junior circuit so far in the career, and will be taking the lead in the most important tournaments in the ATP and Challenger circuits only next season. His good performances in the junior circuit, however, brought Wu various Wild Card invitations to ITF tournaments and even challengers from the organizers, managing even the biggest result of his career by winning the challenger tournament in Shanghai a week ago , where he defeated experienced players such as Hirokyi Moryia, Matthias Bachinger or Peter Polansky, taking advantage of Yen Hsun Lu’s second-round final.
That title meant even more for the young Chinese, winning the confidence of the organizers at Shengdu who did not think and offered a Wild Card on the main board, so the match against Monteiro will be his first match of the ATP career.
