Donna Vekic vs Xinyu Wang: Prediction
Wang will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 20-9 and is 10-4 on the surface this season while being 31-23 across all surfaces this season. Donna will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 42-36 and has a 2-0 surface season record. She is 16-16 for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers, their past performances and recent results, it is difficult to predict an outright winner as both the players have struggled and have had mixed form lately. Nevertheless, Wang looks the one who has an extra edge with a better hardcourt record and might just turn the match in her favour.
Prediction: Xinyu Wang to win in 3-sets.
