Emma Radecanu v Shuai Zhang Head to Head

The pair have met once before, and that was in San Jose just last month, Zhan winning in straight sets for the loss of just five games.

Radecanu is enjoying a summer to remember, after first coming to the attention of the wider public by reaching the fourth round of Wimbledon as a wildcard.

She then reached the final of the Challenger event in Chicago, before coming through three rounds of qualifying to make the main draw in Flushing Meadows for the first time.

Originally scheduled to meet Jennifer Brady, she was paired instead with Lucky Loser Stephanie Voegele, after the American was forced to scratch from the tournament due to injury.

It was the Swiss world number 128 who achieved the first break, but the teenager responded with three consecutive breaks of her on to claim the first set.

The pair swapped breaks early in the second set, but then Voegele again dropped her serve, giving Radecanu the chance to serve for the match. Six match points came and went, but the seventh proved to be the deciding factor in the end.

Zhang Beats Local Contender

This is the ninth time that Zhang has appeared at the US Open, where she has reached the third round on three previous occasions.

She began her latest campaign with a match against Hailey Baptiste of the USA, the world 181, and another teenager.

Zhang broke the American in the fourth game, and that was ultimately enough to guarantee her the set.

And then she broke Baptiste again midway through the second set. Baptiste fought back immediately to level, but was then broken to love, and Zhang was able to serve out for the match.

Radecanu v Zhang Prediction and Tip

Radecanu has already shown this summer that she may have a bright future ahead of her, but Zhang beat her easily in their only previous encounter last month, and will start the favourite to do so again.
