Partnering Sun Ziyue, Xu won her first $50,000 ITF tournament at the event in Sanya, defeating Yang Zhaoxuan and Zhao Yijing in the 2013 final.


At the 2014 Shenzhen Open, Xu made her WTA tour debut. Having been given a wildcard into qualifying for the singles main draw, she was drawn against Britain's Johanna Konta. Despite a difference of over 500 places in the world rankings, Xu won in straight sets,[1] but lost to Lyudmyla Kichenok in the final round. Partnering Sun Ziyue again in doubles at the tournament, Xu was given a wildcard into the main draw,[2] but couldn't make it past her fellow Chinese pairing of Wang Yafan and Zheng Jie,[2] who later made it to the semifinals.[2]

At the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics in Nanjing, Xu won the gold medal in girls' singles, having defeated Iryna Shymanovich of Belarus in straight sets in the final.[3]
