Xinyu Wang vs Sofia Kenin – Match Predictions
As Xinyu Wang sets her sights on her first victory over Sofia Kenin, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Sofia Kenin to Win
To be fair, Xinyu Wang has put up a fairly good run of results these past few weeks; she has five wins in her last seven matches, with all of those victories coming in straight sets. However, Wang has not fared too well against Sofia Kenin in the past; she’s 0 for 2 in matches against the American, and 0 for 4 in sets. It’s also important to point out that Sofia Kenin is coming into this match on the back of four consecutive wins, and for this reason, we believe she’ll come out on top.
Over 21.5 Total Games
Granted, Sofia Kenin defeated Xinyu Wang in straight sets the last two times these players met. However, the Chinese player has enjoyed some fine form recently, winning five of her last seven matches in straight sets. Bearing in mind that these two have been playing well lately, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest. The most recent clash between these players went above the 21.5 games mark, and that’s why we’re taking the over option here.
