Su-Wei Hsieh Biography

Hsieh Su-wei is a Taiwanese professional female tennis player. Hsieh has a very different style of play, compared to most of the other players. She hits the ball with two hands on both sides, thus hitting very flat. Her unorthodox way of playing creates many big angles in her game and makes her shots unpredictable. Hsieh displayed stunning results in the 2001 season as a 15-year-old. Playing on the ITF Circuit, she won all of the five events she entered at Wellington, Kaohsiung, Bangkok (twice) and Peachtree City from January until November. In 2006, Hsieh entered Wimbledon for the first time and lost in the first round in both Ladies' Singles and Ladies' Doubles.   Su-wei started 2008 by winning three matches to qualify for the Australian Open, where she won her first ever main draw Grand Slam match defeating Klára Zakopalová in three sets. In June 2008, Hsieh had her best Wimbledon Ladies' Singles result by making it to the second round and losing to number 9 seedDinara Safina of Russia. She went on to win three WTA doubles titles over the course of the year 2009, each with Peng, winning in Sydney, Rome, and Beijing. Partnering with Zheng Jie, she won the doubles event at the 2011 Guangzhou International Women's Open. Hsieh won 3 ITF singles titles in 2011; at Mildura, Beijing and Seoul. In March 2012, aged 26, she won her first WTA singles title, beating Petra Martic at the BMW Malaysian Open.
