HUSTer wins runner-up in Australian Open

Jan 28, 2024

In the 2024 Australian Open women's singles final, Zheng Qinwen, an undergraduate student majoring in athletic training in the class of 2023 at HUST, won her first Grand Slam singles runner-up. 21-year-old Zheng Qinwen also became the second Chinese player to make it to the final of the Australian Open women's singles after Li Na, a HUST alumna who won the title at Australian Open 2014. Zheng will reach a new career-best of seventh in the world rankings. Up to now, the two Chinese tennis players ranked in the top ten globally are both from HUST!

HUST immediately sent a congratulatory letter to Zheng Qinwen, extending warm wishes on behalf of the faculty and students. The Australian Alumni Association of HUST also put together a support team to rally behind Zheng Qinwen at the event.
