“In the semifinals, she was behind in 1-2 against Jeon Jihee. In this match, I believe that she showed some problems. Against left-handed players, Chen Meng needs to be more detailed. In the finals she lost to Ding Ning. You can see that her forehand is still not as good as Ding Ning’s.” Kong Linghui concluded.
