Laslo Djere vs Zhizhen Zhang – Match Predictions

As Laslo Djere and Zhizhen Zhang meet for the first time today, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Zhizhen Zhang to Win a Set

We would like to point out that Zhizhen Zhang has a losing record on every surface this year, except on clay. The Chinese player has 21 wins in 2023, and 14 of those came on this surface. Interestingly, Zhizhen Zhang has held his own against most of the players he faced on clay; as he took at least one set in 10 of his last 11 matches on clay courts. Given that Laslo Djere surrendered at least one set in six of his last eight matches, we believe that Zhizhen Zhang will not go down in straight sets.

At Least 22 Total Games

Next, let’s explore the over/under games market. It’s important to note that three of Laslo Djere’s last five matches in best-of-three tournaments ended in maximum sets, with seven of his last eight matches going above the 21.5 game line (best-of-three matches only). Likewise, three of Zhizhen Zhang’s last five matches ended in maximum sets. Taking everything into account, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest, and that’s why we’re taking the over option for this match.
