Serena Williams – Qiang Wang Match Prediction | 03-09-2019 19:00

It should also be noted that of Serenas 12 US Open quarter-final victories, she won 8 of them in straight-sets, including at last seasons tournament. Serena has looked great in the majority of her matches so far at the tournament, and she seems to be playing at a higher level than Wang. Of Serenas last 8 victories, shes won 6 of them in straight-sets, while shes won 14 of her last 16 matches in general. The American great is also a fantastic 12-3 in US Open quarter-finals, which includes winning her last 9 successive US Open quarter-finals.

But she not only failed to seize those opportunities, but inexplicably went on to lose five consecutive games thereafter to surrender the second set. Having won the first set rather easily, she looked on course for a straight-sets victory, when she had two break point opportunities at 1-1 in the second set. Serenas performance in her first match at Miami against Rebecca Peterson was far from convincing.

She hit just 14 unforced errors in victory, making Barty look far from the No.1 player she is.I think Im really focused on the court today, she said. A disciplined performance from the Chinese star saw her shock Ashleigh Barty with a fairly routine 6-4 6-2 victory, earning her the first slam quarter final of her career.

The US Open has always been a very strong tournament for Serena Williams and following her final loss last season, she seems very determined to win this tournament. Serena controlled the entire match and won the contest as a result of her incredible power. Looking at Serena Williams, the American was very impressive in the previous round as she defeated Petra Martic in straight sets. During the win, Serena Williams won 90% of her service games and 3 return games.

Dog of the day

Wang, meanwhile, is enjoying the Grand Slam run of her life. Jim:Williams had an injury when she rolled her ankle chasing down a short ball against Petra Martic, but other than that there has been little cause for concern for the great American. She has dropped just one set so far and played some great tennis. But will she be able to stop the Williams juggernaut?

But she fought her way out of that difficult game to hold it, which spurred her into much better performance thereafter. She went on to break Peterson twice in the set and held the last game to love to seal an unexpectedly tight match. And when she went down a break point in the first game of the deciding set, she seemed to have completely lost her way.

Serena has eased to victory in 3 of her 4 matches so far, dropping just 2, 5 and 7 games in her respective straight-set victories. Serena Williams has been fantastic throughout the tournament so far, and Wangs going to find it extremely tough to keep with her in this match. This will also be Wangs first match against Serena, and so she doesnt have the experience of having ever faced the American. Wang is also playing in the biggest match of her career here, and she might come unstuck if she doesnt start well.

Its interesting that Wang chalked up a win in her only meeting with Serena Williams. The Chinese womans ability to get one more ball back requires a focused approach, one with the Aussie couldnt endure. Tracey:The consistency of Wang Qiang was more than Ashleigh Barty could sustain in their Round of 16 bout. Serena simply has the power to blast Wang off the court. Not the case now as the American superstar has dominated throughout her US Open campaign. Yet, that happened at a time where Serena struggled with injury and questionable form.

Head 2 Head

Americanca gave up only one set so far, in the second round, surprisingly, in front of compatriot McNally, the one who managed to win the first set of the match, forcing Serena to return from 0-1. Serena Williams seems to have a long way to go for the coveted 24th Grand Slam title, both her game and the eclipse of her rivals, making this all the more likely. However, if he imposes his force game and minimizes unforced errors, normally the American does not will have problems. There was no problem for the great champion, this one imposing itself categorically and yielding only 4 games in the sets 2 and 3. Against Wang, Serena could meet a stronger resistance, knowing that the Chinese player has a varied game, with surprising hits.

Wang Qiang caused a major upset in the previous round as she defeated Ashleigh Barty in straight sets. The serving was also very impressive from Wang Qiang as she won 67% of her service points which allowed her to win all of her service games. Wang Qiang is a very consistent player but this match is expected to be a tough challenge as she is playing against elite opposition. It was a solid performance by Wang as she impressed with her defensive ability. Wang forced Barty to hit extra shots throughout the match and that resulted in the Australian making errors.

Eric:It will be interesting to see how Williams ankle holds up, as she rolled it in her previous match. For Wang, she will not only have to face the arguably the greatest tennis player in her backyard, but also her home fans that will be rooting hard for her.
