Zheng Upsets Andreescu

In her three matches at the National Bank Open, Zheng has sent home two Canadians on their home soil. In her opening match, she lost the first set, but managed a comeback to defeat Rebecca Marino, and her most recent match saw her defeat Andreescu 7-5, 5-7, 6-2. Not the mention that match in between, her round of 32 match, she defeated fifth seed Ons Jabeur.

Not a bad tournament so far for the 19-year old.

Pliskova vs Zheng Pick

This is going to be an exciting match between these two. Don’t be surprised if the two come out to a slower start, as their previous matches went the distance, and then some.

Pliskova is definitely the more established player of the two, and she’ll be looking to bring that into this match against the 19-year old. Zheng isn’t there yet, but she is a player that has Top 20, or even Top 10 potential. In the new rankings, Zheng should jump into the Top 40, and continue to rise.

As the veteran, Pliskova will look to impose her strength and aggressive in to the match early. But with the tournament that Zheng is having, she doesn’t look to be backing away from anything. With the tight odds, look for the best bet to be around how many sets will be in the match.

Best Bet: Over 2.5 sets (+145)
