Qinwen Zheng v Alycia Parks Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 19 year-old Chinese woman, and the American, who is two years older.
Zheng Wins Challenger Event in Spain
Zheng is the latest in the string of talented teenagers that are making an impact on women’s tennis.
She only made her main tour debut last year, but reached her first semi-final at the Melbourne Summer Set 1 event in January, and qualified for her maiden Grand Slam shortly afterwards, losing to Maria Sakkari in the second round of the Australian Open, breaking into the top 100 for the first time shortly afterwards.
Her rise since then has continued and she is now at an all-time ranking following her exploits at the French Open, where she reached the fourth run, before her progress was ended by the world number one Iga Świątek.
Since then she has won a Challenger event on clay in Spain, where she beat compatriot Wang Xiy in the final on Sunday.
She has no known form on grass.
History Maker Parks
Although Parks may be a relatively unknown name, the American earned her place in the record books last year at the US Open, when she equalled Serena’s Williams record for the fastest serve ever by a woman at 129 mph.
That would suggest that her game is ideally suited to grass.
More usually found on the ITF tour, where she won a doubles’ title in Australia in January, and finished rummer-up in another in Charlottesville in April, this is a rare appearance for her in a main WTA event.
However, she earned her place in the main draw after beating both Ulrikke Eikeri of Norway, and Kamilla Rakhimova in the qualifying competition.
Zheng v Parks Prediction and Tip
Zheng will start favourite for this match because, despite being the younger woman, she is the more experienced of the pair and is in a rich vein of form right now. Parks will be looking to use her serve to her advantage, but, provided that she adapts her game in time, Zheng should advance to the next round.
