Our favourite Dayana Yastremska vs Qinwen Zheng – match predictions

The intriguing aspect of the semi-final lies in how Zheng handles the pressure as the favourite. Having played more sets and games in the main round compared to Yastremska, who fought her way from the qualifiers. A shot at glory is on the lines and fans will be in for a treat at Rod Laver Arena as the duo lock horns.

2-1 to Qinwen Zheng @ 3/1 (4.00)

The road to the Australian Open final takes a thrilling turn as Dayana and Qinwen prepare to go head-to-head in the semi-finals. Yastremska has defied the odds to get her and it will be on Zheng to stop her progress. With a favourable record against sub-50 ranked players, it is easy to back the Chinese sensation. However, it will not be easy as Yastremska has only dropped one set in the main rounds. We are backing Zheng to dig out a victory in this duel but not without taking some beating. Based on this, we are backing a 2-1 result in favour of Zheng.

Over 22.5 Games @ 1/1 (2.00)

Yastremska has not come up with a top-15 player en route to the semi-finals. This has allowed her to come out unscathed from her battles. In Zheng, she has one such rival. While not playing at her absolute best, the Chinese ace showcased her dogged ability by carving out three deciding set wins. The Ukrainian ace can stretch sets and deliver blows but it will not faze Zheng. We expect a long duel, one that goes to the deciding set. This should showcase over 22.5 games and is our other selection for this Australian Open semi-final encounter.
