Katie Swan vs Saisai Zheng – WTA Washington : On this first round of the North-American tournament WTA Washington
We have an encounter between a hometown player and a Chinese player,
with Swan reaching this round because she was offered a Wildcard.
Katie Swan, with 19 years of age, is the current 176th of the WTA Rankings.
The American is, sort of, at the start of her season, because she didn’t play for over half the tournaments, and that way, her absence only allowed her to start playing in June.
Her favourite surfaces are the fast ones, but she doesn’t have great results on the season that make me believe she will be at her peak right now.
Katie Swan vs Saisai Zheng – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Saisai Zheng is a 24-year-old tennis player who is currently ranked 112th of the WTA Rankings.
The Chinese has been having a really good season, the best of her career so far.
She counts with an ITF title, a Challenger final and recently a WTA final, so her motivation should be at its peak.
I’ll go with the player clearly in better form, who has played more matches and should be favoured here.
