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.

Total Games – Over 20

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.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Naomi Osaka vs Zhang Shuai

Naomi Osaka:

The former world #1 had a good start to the season, reaching the semi-finals in Melbourne and the final in Miami. However, Osaka had a prolonged playing crisis as she won only two matches in her last four starts.

Last week, Naomi played in Toronto. In the first round of that competition, she played against Kaia Kanepi. Due to back pain, she had to withdraw from the match in the second set.

Naomi Osaka has lost 4 of her last 5 matches. 

Zhang Shuai:

Zhang Shuai showed her best results of the season on fast surfaces. For example, he had a title in the Lyon Open and a final in Birmingham.

The transition to the hard courts could not be called a success. In San Jose, Zhang Shuai lost in the first round to Madison Keys (4-6, 2-6). In Toronto, she defeated Cristina Bucsa (6-1, 6-3) before losing to Simona Halep (4-6, 2-6).

Zhang Shuai has lost 7 of her last 10 matches to higher-ranked opponents.  

Safe Bets

In three of the five head-to-head encounters, less than 9.5 games have been played in the first set. We offer to bet on “1st Set Games – Under 9.5” with odds of 1.56.
