Our favourite Qinwen Zheng vs Aryna Sabalenka – match predictions

Sabalenka, the defending champion, has displayed her dominance throughout the tournament, while Zheng, the rising star, has impressed with her resilience and breakthrough performances.

2-0 to Aryna Sabalenka @ 13/25 (1.52)

The last time Sabalenka and Zheng faced off against each other, the Belarusian star came out on top in straight sets. While Zheng has been hurt by her rivals, Sabalenka has yet to drop a set at Melbourne Park so far. The reigning champion has overcome stiffer competition, who could not hurt her and it looks unlikely that the Chinese ace will be able to change this statistic.

Under 20.5 Games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Zheng could only shave off five sets against Sabalenka in their US Open meeting. She enters this meeting after a 20-game encounter with the returning Dayana Yastremska. However, Sabalenka is a very tough beast and will not be tamed that way but the situation will be the other way around. Their last meeting lasted 17 games and the Under 20.5 games selection is a risk-averse punt.
