- 2 Zhengzhou clash: Paolini aims to break Garcia’s hold in second-round duel
- 3 Key match details
Garcia impressed in her 2-1 defeat to eventual champion Iga Swiatek at the China Open and will be looking to give a better account of her abilities with a much easier stacked card.
Caroline Garcia to win @ 1/2 (1.50)
Paolini has struggled to give dominant displays, as evidenced by her victories in Beijing coming in three-set affairs. She will have to rise to Garcia’s level, a feat she has struggled with in the past. Their prior meetings have all finished in favour of the WTA 10-ranked French pro and we believe the trend will continue in this duel.
2-0 to Caroline Garcia @ 6/5 (2.20)
Paolini’s last three defeats have come in straight sets and we believe that trend will continue in this duel as well. On the other hand, Garcia impressed in the China Open with her straight-set victories over Baindl and Kalinina. Only Putintseva tested her resolve but we believe Paolini will not be able to live up to that. It will be a straight-set victory for Garcia, as she has managed in their four prior duels.
Jasmine Paolini vs Caroline Garcia odds
Garcia enters the match with a solid implied probability of 66.7%, making her the clear favourite in this Zhengzhou Open encounter. Jasmine Paolini, with an implied probability of 39.2%, faces an uphill battle against the odds.

Zhengzhou clash: Paolini aims to break Garcia’s hold in second-round duel
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far this season for the latest tennis betting tips and predictions here.
Jasmine Paolini preview
It has been a struggling weeks on the WTA tour for Paolini and the Italian would be looking to go deep in Zhengzhou. Only at the China Open has seen the 31-ranked star get a couple of wins under her belt, the first time it has happened since her Cincinnati Open quarter-final run. She impressed with her 6-2 and 6-3 win over Moyuka Uchijima, and will want to get the better of Garcia for the first time.
Caroline Garcia preview
End of the 2023 campaign is approaching and Garcia will be looking to finish it on a strong foot. After ending her four-match losing streak since the Championships, she has only reached the quarter-finals in Cleveland and the semi-finals of Guadalajara. The onus is on her to deliver as the sixth seed and will be wary of the field of ply.
Jasmine Paolini vs Caroline Garcia head to head
Garcia holds a commanding 4-0 head-to-head advantage over Jasmine Paolini, with each of their previous meetings ending in straight-set victories for the Frenchwoman
