After successfully defending his title in Asia, Wang Qiang will be heading to Tokyo to compete in the 2020 Olympics.

Q. Wang Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
The 26-year-old won the all-Chinese final against Zhang Shuai 6-3, 6-2 at the Jakabaring Sport Complex, guaranteeing himself a spot in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
Wang, who repeated her victory from the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, said, “For me, the primary aim was to go to Tokyo.”
Getting to Tokyo was my motivation for playing in this competition. Tokyo is a fantastic city. I always look forward to visiting Tokyo. That’s fantastic, by the way; I adore it.
To get there was the initial goal, and I’ve Accomplished it.
After that, all I can do is sit back and take it all in. Like many people, I find Tokyo to be a pleasant experience.
Achieving this status is fitting for the Tianjin native ranked 53rd in the world, as she spent her formative years playing in Japan and is looking forward to making a triumphant comeback there.
Wang matched his countryman Pan Bing, who won the men’s singles event at the 1990 and 1994 Asian Games, as the only tennis player to win multiple gold medals in the singles event at the Asian Games.
She blamed the week’s oppressive heat.
I went into the competition prepared, and it showed. It was more challenging than the previous one.
It was a little bit more pressure on me because everyone expects you to win the next one after you win the previous one. But I enjoy playing under pressure because it brings out my best performance.
A pretty Challenging match Indeed.
We were in the finals of a Chinese competition last year, and that’s usually a big deal. To put it simply, she’s a talented player.
A quick stay in China before heading to New York to compete in the U.S. Open’s first round at Flushing Meadows means Wang won’t have long to bask in the glory of her victory.
