18-year-old is one of the most exciting players on tour. She was one of the key names to watch before the recent US open, but unfortunately she never made it to the Flushing Meadows after the sudden death of her beloved father.
Amanda took some time off to regroup and she is now back to the tour in Wuhan when she wants to have a “relaxed” run.
