Su-Wei Hsieh managed to turn the match with Caroline Wozniacki, when she won 6-7, 6-1 and 6-2 and so she had a lot to say after the match.

Wozniacki was already winning 5-1 and 40-15 in the first set, having two set balls. But Hsieh managed to equalize the score and got the set into the tie-break. There she lost 7-2, but it kicked off her perfect performance in the rest of the match. Afterwards she said:
"The first set was not easy, because I just came from Osaka. I lost early so I was not preparing for singles too much, because I was in the doubles with my sister," Hsieh told WTA Insider after the match.
"Since the first set when I was 1-5 down and I picked up one or two games, I was feeling more rhythm," Hsieh added. "Normally, when losing by a lot, I feel more free on the court. I knew the match could go very fast, so I kept trying.
"When I came on the court...I was a little bit lost, and she was playing good as well, I asked my coach to come on the court and I said, 'Okay, I don't feel anything. I feel weird.' And he said, 'It's okay, just try to play,' and I did."
In the second and third set Hsieh already dominated when she won 12 out of 15 games, winning those sets 6-1 and 6-2.
"I tried to not get crazy with losing on the court. Sometimes, when you don't get rhythm, and the other girl is really good, it can go really fast because after a few games, you feel like you want to cry on the court.
"I was a little bit upset, but not totally gone, so it was very good what I tried to do."
In the next round she meets Svetlana Kuznetsova, who did not lose a set yet in Wuhan in three matches, defeating Zheng, Mattek-Sands and Putintseva.
"Definitely it's not going to be an easy match," Hsieh said, "so I need to try to play good. "I hope the fans will cheer louder for me."
