Qinwen Zheng vs Madison Keys – Match Predictions

With both players setting their sights on a place in the second round, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Madison Keys to Win

It’s important to point out that Qinwen Zheng is coming into this match with a lot of confidence. The Chinese player reigned supreme at the Palermo Open a couple of weeks ago, and has a five-match winning streak ahead of this tie. However, we’ve also been impressed by Madison Keys’ recent run of results; as she won nine of her last 10 matches, with eight of those victories coming in straight sets. All things considered, we are leaning towards the American for the victory.

At Least 22 Total Games

We’ve already established that both players have enjoyed some fine form lately. While Qinwen Zheng has won five matches in a row, Madison Keys has nine victories in her last 10 matches. That said, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest. Given how well these two have played recently, this match will likely go all the way to three sets. On that note, we are taking the over 21.5 games option.

Qinwen Zheng vs Madison Keys Preview

We’ve gotten our Qinwen Zheng vs Madison Keys predictions out of the way; let’s see how these players have fared in the weeks leading up to this tournament.

Qinwen Zheng

Qinwen Zheng put up an impressive performance at the Palermo Open two weeks ago; as she defeated players like Jasmine Paolini and Mayar Sherif en route to the title. Compared to these players however, Madison Keys will be a relatively bigger fish to fry. It’ll be interesting to see how Zheng will match-up against her American opponent.

Madison Keys

On the other hand, Madison Keys last played at Wimbledon, where she lost to Aryna Sabalenka in the quarter-final. The American had won nine consecutive matches prior to that loss, dropping just one set in the process. Keys will fancy her chances of getting to the second round at the expense of Qinwen Zheng.

Qinwen Zheng vs Madison Keys Head to Head

Qinwen Zheng will take on Madison Keys for the first time in her career today. This isn’t much of a surprise considering the Chinese player is just 20 years old, and has been on tour for just a couple of years.
