Three Years Since Winning Sequence for Wang

It has been three years since Wang enjoyed a purple patch of form reaching four WTA finals in the space of five months, all of them on home soil, winning two of them, although all those matches were on hard courts.

A year later she was ranked as high as 12 in the world, but she has been sliding down the rankings since then, and like many Chinese players, did not appeasr in tour at all last year after lockdown.

2021 did not start well for her, with three successive defeats, and since then, the furthest she has got in any tournament has been the second round.

That was the stage she reached last week in Istanbul her only previous event on clay since her comeback.

She defeated a Russian qualifier but was then well beaten by Ana Konjuh of Croatia, the world 205.

Muchova Coming off Australian Open Semi-Final

Muchova won her solitary WTA title in Korea back in 2019, but she has enjoyed some good results in Grand Slams since the resumption of the sport after lockdown, reaching the fourth round of the USA Open last September.

She was knocked out at the first round stage of the French Open, but really made a name for herself in Melbourne this year, reaching the semi-final stage, and knocking out in the process the world number one and home town favourite Ashleigh Barty in the last eight.

She was eventually beaten by Jennifer Brady in three sets.

Muchova then took two months off before resuming at the Stuttgart Open, but she did not get beyond the first round. She was beaten by the Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova, the world 32, in three sets.

Wang v Muchova Prediction and Tip

Although neither woman is a renowned clay court player, Muchova is in much the better recent form of the pair, and should win comfortably.

Tip: Muchova to win: 6/17 (bet365)
