Chinese tennis player breaks Naomi Osaka's season record

Zheng Qinwen of China broke the season record for the most number of aces in a single match on the Women’s Tour.

In a second-round match against Ekaterina Alexandrova of Russia (6-2, 5-7, 2-5, RT), Qinwen served 19 aces.

She surpassed Naomi Osaka, who had previously made 18 aces in one match.

Osaka had broken her previous record for most aces in a match on April 1. She did it in a WTA-1000 semifinal game against Belinda Bencic in Miami. That time Naomi had surpassed the record of Ashley Barty of Australia who had 17 aces against Sophia Kenin of the USA in Adelaide.
