Wu Yiming went 3-3 in her last 6 games in the Chinese Women A league. At first glance, there is nothing impressive there, but Wu is only 14 and her opponents were among the strongest women in the world. All her opponents were rated above 3000. Here is a list of her last 6 games from
2021-04-02   Loss  Luo Chuyue    3108 (#419 overall, ranked 23rd woman in the world)
2021-04-01   Loss  Zhou Hongyu   3253 (#207 overall, #3 in women's world rankings)   
2021-03-31   Win   Yu Zhiying    3265 (#193 overall, #2 in women's rankings!)   
2021-03-29   Loss  Cai Bihan     3101 (#24 in women's rankings)
2021-03-28   Win   Tang Jiawen   3116 (#18)
2021-03-27   Loss  Wang Yubo     3134 (#15)
2021-03-26   Win   Lu Jia        3037 (#39)

By comparison, Fujisawa Rina is #5, Ueno Asami is #9 and Suzuki Ayumi is #32 in these rankings. I think Wu Yiming will get in the top 50 women in the world by the end of this year (when she will be 15) and will be #1 within 5 years.

It is difficult for me to watch her progress because the Chinese go results are all in Chinese. This is an article about some results, but the google translation of these articles is painful to read. I can't even tell what place is Wu's team (Hangzhou Yunlin?).

Wu Yiming's last win was against Yu Zhiying (world #2), who just won Senko cup after defeating Choi Jung (#1).

She did beat Yu Zhiying which is Chinese #1 and former world #1.
