Shuai Zhang vs Harriet Dart – Match Predictions

2-0 to Harriet Dart

Given the form Shuai Zhang has been in, it is difficult to back her in this match even though she is roughly 100 ranking places above Harriet Dart. Zhang has lost 11 of her last 12 matches, with 9 of these defeats coming in straight sets. With Dart registering 7 wins in 10 grass court outings, confidence in her claiming a 2-0 victory and piling on the misery for Zhang seems the likely outcome for this first-round duel at Eastbourne International.

Under 21.5 Games

The last three matches involving Dart have seen three sets and Over 21.5 Games. We believe this will not be the case against Zhang, who has accumulated a paltry 14 games across her last four defeats. As the Chinese ace struggles to claim games let alone sets, a swift conclusion to this match is expected with Under 21.5 Games selection giving good value while keeping risk appetite low.

Shuai Zhang vs Harriet Dart Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Eastbourne International.

Shuai Zhang

Shuai Zhang reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2019 and has shown her ability to excel on the grass courts. However, she has been unable to overcome the challenges that has come her way this season, including a recent losing streak of ten matches. Zhang struggled against all and sundry on the hard and clay swing of the tour and will be determined to turn her fortunes around. For a player who started the season with a fourth-round placement in the Australian Open, she will be gunning to showcase her talents once again at Eastbourne International.

Harriet Dart

The rising star has been making a name for herself on the grass-court swing. With impressive performances in recent tournaments, including successive quarterfinal appearances at the Nottingham and Birmingham Open, she has proven her ability to compete against top-ranked players. Dart’s success on British soil, where she has secured the majority of her main draw victories, will surely give her confidence as she enters Eastbourne International and takes on the challenge of a player 98 ranking places above her.
