Elise Mertens v Claire Liu Head to Head

Mertens Dispels Wang Qiang

While Mertens has been struggling for form for a while now, she had no such difficulties in getting past China’s Wang Qiang in her first round match here.

The 44th-ranked player routed Qiang 6-0, 6-3 in a match lasting a mere hour and 21 minutes to seal her second round spot next to Liu.

With Mertens having gotten knocked off in the first round at the US Open after her third round exit in Cincinnati, she was on the lookout to avoid a third successive defeat. And she did it in style as she saved the only break-point she faced while breaking her opponent four times out of the five opportunities she got in the encounter.

Having come into the encounter with six defeats from her previous nine matches, a facile win like this would have given Mertens some respite. Now for her to make it two in two.

Liu Shocks Riske

While Alison Riske was coming off an early exit in Chennai herself, she was still expected to be a heavy favourite coming into her opening round encounter Liu. Liu, however, did not waste too much time in getting past Riske to carve her own second round berth.

In fact, Liu was on court for the same time that Mertens was in her opener, winning 6-2, 6-3 to progress.

The 84th-ranked player was off to a flier with a break of serve in the very second game of the match and then again in the eighth to wrap up the opening set. The two then exchanged breaks in the first two games of the second set before Claire went on a rampage to win five games in a row.

And while Riske came back to break once more, it was Liu to completed the win by serving it out to 30.

Can she now overcome Mertens in this encounter?

Mertens v Liu Prediction and Tip

Mertens is a 2/5 favourite here but Liu can be expected to put up a stronger fight than what those odds suggest. Expect a three-setter that Mertens carves out a win in.

The 2022 Tokyo Open will be played from September 19 to 25.  You can get all the tennis betting news with our tennis betting blog here. Also get rest of the tennis match previews here.
