Yang calls him already "one of the best ball strikers in the world."

"I think last year was a year of growth, and I would like to continue to grow, and also show a better performance. And of course, winning is very important. But for me, I would like to have the opportunity to get some good results and also create a foundation for me to play tournaments in the United States."
