The match

Second seeded Aryna Sabalenka bids to reach her third successive US Open semi-final. Standing in her way is the 23rd seed Qinwen Zhang who is in her first Grand Slam quarter final. It's been a massive week for Sabalenka as it's been confirmed that the 25-year-old will be the world number one in the next ranking list. That means she'll be top of both the overall list and the WTA Race and with substantial leads if winning this US Open. Sabalenka has become the most consistent player in Grand Slams and has reached at least the semi-finals in the last four tournaments. That included winning the Australian Open at the start of this year. Dominant form has been shown by her in this tournament with four straight sets wins and only 16 games dropped. No one has yet won four games in a set against her so far.

Qinwen Zheng began this tournament ranked 23rd in the world but is up a place in the live rankings. A win over Sabalenka will take her up to 17th and that will beat her career high of 19th achieved three months ago.  The 20-year-old Chinese player had a previous best of a fourth round in Grand Slam events. This is only her second time in the main draw of the US Open and last year saw her defeated in the third round. 2023 hadn't been going well in Grand Slam events with her not getting past the second round in the first three held. It's gone much better in New York though and in the last round Zheng beat Ons Jabeur. Two sets have been dropped by her on the way to this quarter final. We believe her run ends here and Sabalenka can win in straight sets.

Key Statistics

  • Sabalenka has only dropped 16 games in her four matches.
  • Zheng has already dropped two sets in this tournament.
  • Sabalenka is ranked 21 places above her opponent.
  • Sabalenka is top of both the live rankings and WTA Race.

The bet of our experts

Aryna Sabalenka is just so consistent in Grand Slams and looks set to reach another semi-final. The second seed and soon to be world number one hasn't dropped a set on her way to this quarter final. No one has even been able to win four games in a set against the 25-year-old. It's been a breakthrough week for Qinwen Zheng with her first Grand Slam quarter final being reached. This is so tough though and we go for Sabalenka to win in straight sets.
