Qiang Wang has not been to a great start in the 2021 season. The 29-year old Chinese player is yet to go past the Round of 16 stage and has been one of the early exit makers this year. She comes to Parma from the Italian Open 2021 where she was knocked out in the first round.

She sets up this tie with a hard fought 3-setter victory in the first round over Japanese player Misaki Doi in a match that went over 2.5 hours.

Martina Di Giuseppe will be playing her 2nd WTA tournament of the season after her 1st round defeat in the qualifying stages of the 2021 Australian Open. She has played primarily in the ITF tournaments but is yet to go past the Round of 16 stage.

She comes into this tie from a straight-set victory in the first round over Japanese Nao Hibino and will now face Wang.

Qiang Wang vs Martina Di Giuseppe : Prediction

Qiang Wang will be the favourite in the upcoming Qiang Wang vs Martina Di Giuseppe clash in Parma.
Qiang Wang

Both the players have similar stats on the Clay courts in their last 2 playing seasons. Wang has been 6-9 whereas Martina is 7-9 in last 2 seasons. Wang however has a little edge over Martina as she is able to take the matches deep even though Martina is more suited on the red soil as compared to Wang who enjoys the hard courts, something that was visible in both of their round 1 victories.

Prediction: Qiang Wang to win in 3-sets.
