Match Predict – Handicap (+5.5) games for Shuai
The tennis players are very familiar with each other’s style of play, as their tournament paths have crossed five times. So far, the head-to-head score is 3-2 in favour of Osaka, but in their two previous matches, the rivals have exchanged victories. Moreover, Zhang Shuai won a set in the losing match.
Naomi couldn’t finish her match in Toronto because of back problems. It’s quite possible that she has not yet fully recovered for the Cincinnati Masters.

In their last head-to-head encounter, they played a three-set match. Given Osaka’s sub-optimal form, we expect today to be a long match as well.
