Zhu to win 2-0 @ 5/6 (1.83)

The North American player is not yet confident in the best tournaments of the season; she competed in 14 tournaments this year, missing the qualifying round in nine of them. In fact, because of her low result, she had to compete in the WTA Japan Open 2023 qualifying round.

Lin Zhu has been more consistent, and she has even won a title in Hua Hin. The Chinese player has won 7 of her previous 9 matches, including 6 in straight sets. Based on her performance thus far in the competition, I expect Zhu will only need two sets to send Mandkik home.

Under 21.5 games @ 4/6 (1.66)

There were a total of 17 games played between the two teams the previous time they met. Six of Lin Zhu’s past seven triumphs were decided in 20 games or less.

Lin’s professional career has only gotten better since their last match, as she is now placed 35th in the WTA rankings. Mandlik rose to 97, but then dropped to 167. All of this data leads me to believe that the match should not have more than 21.5 games.

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.

Lin Zhu 

The Chinese tennis player won a couple of matches before being knocked out in the third round of the US Open. One of the wins was a surprise, as she overcame Victoria Azarenka in the second round. Her performance in New York suggested that she would do well in Osaka.

Elizabeth Mandlik

The American tennis player attained her highest WTA ranking of 97 in June, and she cracked the top 100 for the first time. However, the 22-year-old has not been able to stay there and has dropped more than 50 ranks as a result of the likely results. She has won four times at the WTA Japan Open, including the qualifying round.

Zhu vs Mandlik Head to Head

Despite the fact that they have only met once, this competition will be fierce since Elizabeth Mandlik has some unfinished business. It has been a little over a year since the two players clashed in the final of the W100 Landisville. Lin Zhu gained complete control of the competition on that occasion, winning the title in only two sets.
