Alize Cornet versus Qinwen Zheng head to head
This will be their first meeting on the WTA Tour.
Cornet KOs Ostapenko
There seems to be a recurring theme that French women are doing well at this year’s Roland Garros. Diane Perry knocked out Barbora Krejcikova, Leolia Jeanjean defeated Karolina Pliskova and now Alize Cornet sacked Jelena Ostapenko.
Of the three, Cornet is the most experienced of the group, as she leads the revolution in Paris.
Interestingly, 2022 seems to be the year for the 32-year-old to finally make a significant mark on the tour. She had previously reached the quarterfinals at the Australian Open after upsetting the likes of Garbine Muguruza and Simona Halep. Since then, however, Cornet has fallen in the early rounds of subsequent tournaments, while in Madrid and Rome she herself lost in the opening match – to Varvara Gracheva and Halep, respectively.
As a result, their record on Friday is a mediocre 9-12, but if Grand Slams have shown us anything, it’s that anything can happen. Cornet is the local favourite, spurred on by the roaring support of the crowd. From today’s perspective, her path in round four looks quite open.
Zheng upsets Halep
19-year-old China’s Qinwen Zheng made a piece of history herself when she defeated former world number one Simona Halep 2-6 6-2 6-1. Having only made her WTA Tour debut in Palermo last season, the youngster has clearly come a long way since then.
Zheng’s highlights of the season include reaching the semi-finals in Melbourne 1, the second round of the Australian Open as a qualifier and winning the ITF title in Orlando.
Her form on clay was disappointing, falling early in Charleston (eliminated by Ekaterina Alexandrova) and Madrid (losing to Karolina Muchova). Nonetheless, she made it into the top 70 for the first time in her career and now finds herself at number 74.
Cornet v Zheng prediction and tip
Cornet will start as a favorite given her experience and ability to play under pressure. While Zheng has the energy and physical stamina, the crowd that gathers against her can make things a bit difficult for her.
But that doesn’t mean she won’t fight back; This match can go over three sets, but Cornet is more likely to emerge victorious.
The French Open 2022 will be held from May 22nd to June 5th. You can watch and bet on these games here. Get your latest premium tennis predictions here.
