- 3 Key match details
After his US Open heartache, a defiant Murray defeated Leandro Riedi. On the other hand, it has been a period to forget for Ye Cong Mo, who has one win in September.
6-8 Set 1 total games @ 19/20 (1.95)
Mo has lost four of his last five matches and his fate does not seem to be changing in Zhuhai. It is difficult to see Murray being tested by Mo in this duel and the British ace will impose his will from the get-go. It will be complete domination by the three-time Grand Slam winner who should take the first set with 6-8 games being played.
Under 17.5 Games @ 7/10 (1.70)
Against 463-ranked Alafia Ayeni, Mo was dismantled in 18 games. Given Murray’s pedigree and his dogged ability, we expect him to improve on Ayeni’s result. The match will not see the same number of games as the American had to withstand and the Scotsman will be back in the changing rooms with less than 17.5 games played.

Andy Murray preview
Struggling with niggling injuries, the British ace showcased his talent at Flushing Meadows. Grigor Dimitrov was made to sweat in the three-setter that lasted two hours and 48 minutes. Murray followed it up with Davis Cup participation, ensuring that the Brits defeated Switzerland in their group. It was a tense three-hour and 12-minute battle, one that saw the former world number 1 triumph over Leandro Riedi.
Ye Cong Mo preview
The 23-year-old has gone from sublime to woeful in recent weeks. He reached the semi-finals of M15 Shanghai and M25 Fuzhou in July and followed it up with a quarter-final finish in M25 Baotou. Since then, he has been on a losing streak, losing four of his proceeding six matches. He is a wild card entrant in the Zhuhai Championships and needs to make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself.
