Aryna Sabalenka vs Zhang Shuai Prediction
Aryna Sabalenka will be the favourite to win this match. Sabalenka had played amazing games under high pressure and ended up victorious.
But Shai shouldn’t be taken lightly as he had to defeat Osaka and Kontaveit in the tournament. She has simply been too steady, hitting winners from impossible angles and excelling on defence too.
Sabalenka is undoubtedly the better server between them but her double shots might pull her a bit back. She is even known for her heavy-hitting shots and groundstrokes.
Aryna Sabalenka would be favourable to win this match, but Shuai won’t even give up this easily.
