Kiki Bertens v Saisai Zheng Head to Head
The two ladies have met only once on the tour in the 2016 Miami Open. Bertens won that match in straight sets.
Bertens, on a Roll
Kiki Bertens, currently ranked World No. 10, is heading into this fixture with a win-loss tally of 51-24. With this impeccable of an strike rate, she has been absolutely brilliant throughout this season and now, is looking forward to sealing the season with a perfect win.
So far in Zhuhai, she has been on a roll as she qualified for the semifinal without any major difficulties. Having defeated the likes of Kiki Bertens and Dayana Yastremska in straight sets, Bertens proved herself to be one of the few players who has been that clinical this year. With two singles titles in from the St. Petersburg Open and Madrid Open (along with two runner-up trophies), it has been a year for the top seed to remember.
In a way, it’s interesting how she found her groove in Asia, despite having a rather poor start in the Asian Swing. With early defeats in Zhengzhou, Osaka, and Wuhan, she managed to reach the semifinal in Beijing, marking the start of her end-year resurgence of sorts on the tour.
Zheng, with her Season-Best Run
With a win-loss tally of 25-22, Saisai Zheng hasn’t had the best run on the tour this year. Currently ranked World No. 40, the best she has managed so far is winning the title in the San Jose Open, defeating Maria Sakkari and Aryna Sabalenka.
She has had a much better time as a doubles player, given that is currently a part of the top 30 there. The singles circuit hasn’t been too kind to her, with most of her matches ending in early exits from the tournaments.
But in Zhuhai, as a local favourite, she has managed to deliver exceptionally well. Despite winning just one match out of the two Madison Keys, Zheng has managed to qualify for the semifinal, courtesy of her 6-4, 6-2 win. Now, she is a prime favourite to win the tournament.
Bertens v Zheng Predictions & Tips
Expect Bertens to win this one comfortably. As good as Zheng may be, Bertens has been quite clinical here and it shouldn’t be a problem for her to win this.
