Zhang has won both meetings against Trevisan in straight sets. The most recent match was this year in Rome.
Trevisan entered this tournament in poor form, and she didn’t play well in her first round match despite the victory. Zhang is playing well this month and has had no issue beating Trevisan twice in recent meetings. There’s no reason not to back Zhang in this match.
Give me Zhang in straight sets.
