Yibing Wu vs Kyle Edmund – Match Predictions

Chinese tennis star, Yibing Wu, triumphed in the ATP Dallas but could only get to 1/32 finals of the Indian Wells. The 23-year-old will have to overcome the looming presence of Kyle Edmund if he is to better his showings in the Sunset Masters.

2-0 to Yibing Wu

Wu lost in the Cleveland Challenger finals and then followed it up with glory in the ATP Dallas. He has the marker on his back and will want to give a better account of his abilities after a soft defeat to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. With Edmund making his return after the Australian Open and likely to ease himself back into action after an injury scare, Wu should progress at his expense. It should be one-way traffic, one in which the Chinese ace claims both sets.

Under 20.5 Games

Wu’s last three victories saw him drop a set en route to 2-1 triumphs. However, he should have an easy outing against Edmund, who has been out of action since the middle of January. It would be the British ace’s fifth match since August 2022 and match rust will be an issue. Based on Edmund’s inactivity and Wu’s superb form, we believe the match will finish early and with Under 20.5 games.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.

Yibing Wu

Corentin Moutet knocked Wu out of the Australian Open and since then he has not looked back. He followed the January setback with a run to the final of the Cleveland Challenger where Aleksandar Kovacevic had the better of him. In his next outing in the ATP Dallas, he left no stone unturned and added silverware to his ranks at John Isner’s expense. He did falter early in the Indian Wells and will back himself to go deep as the turn of Sunset Masters comes to a close.

Kyle Edmund

Once hailed as the next British hope, Kyle Edmund has been marred by injuries. The 28-year-old has failed to fulfil his potential as Andy Murray has done and Cameron Norrie is doing. He has lost all five of his matches since August 2022 and his last victory in the ATP Winston-Salem over Michail Pervolarakis seems a distant memory. He still has time on his side and needs to ease back into competition. With the greater chunk of the 2023 campaign ahead of him, minutes on the court is all that he will want.
