Shuai Zhang v Tereza Martincova Head to Head
Zhang and Martincova have not played each other at tour level main draw, but have faced off once before in the qualifying rounds of the Australian Open in 2016. The Chinese woman won in straight sets.
Zhang Halts Burrage Charge
Shuai Zhang put the brakes on British wild card Jodie Burrage, whose quest to record back-to-back wins on the main tour hit a wall.
The Chinese woman is enjoying her most productive season on a singles court, having won her fourth WTA title on the indoor hard courts of Lyon earlier this year. And it appears Zhang would love to return to the finals on Sunday in Nottingham and have another crack at the title. Last year, she lost to Johanna Konta in the championship match.
Zhang and Burrage took a while to find their footing in the blustery conditions in Nottingham as the pair of them dropped serve to start the match. But it was the 33-year-old Zhang who maximized on her experience and played with supreme efficiency thereafter.
The fourth seed wrapped up the first set in half an hour after breaking serve twice more in quick succession. The second set was highly competitive as the 23-year-old Burrage raised her level and was clearly looking to impress on home territory.
The Briton went toe to toe with Zhang and broke for a 4-3 lead. However, she succumbed to nerves while she served for the second set at 5-4 and relinquished the lead. Zhang would force a tiebreak which she ultimately won comfortably.
Martincova Makes Second Quarterfinal of 2022
Tereza Martincova pulled off a shock win over the eighth seed Magda Linette to reach her second quarterfinal of 2022. The Czech won 6-2 7-6 – a mirror scoreline of Zhang’s win over Burrage – in an hour and 41 minutes.
Martincova put on a clinic in the opening set. She put pressure right out of the gate, fashioning a break point chance as early as the first game. But she patiently waited until Linette’s next service game in which she finally punctured the Pole’s serve. And she did so in double succession to romp into a 5-1 lead, before sealing the set 6-2.
There was resistance coming from Linette in the second set in which momentum swung back and forth. Both players traded breaks midway through the second set, before a tiebreak decided matters.
Martincova had a shoddy tiebreak record in 2022 prior to this week, but managed to win her second in two matches and more importantly reach the last eight in Nottingham.
Zhang v Martincova Prediction and Tip
Martincova has scaled a much more treacherous path to the quarterfinals which could be a good thing. Zhang for all of her experience is rightly the underdog in this match.
