Last week in Dubai, Zhang Shuai held its first tournament after the Australian Open. It didn’t work out very well. In the second round of qualification, the Chinese tennis player lost to Bogdan (6-3, 4-6, 6-7). Note that in that game in the line of bookmakers, Zhang Shuai was the favorite of the match.
In Doha, Zhang played for the last time in 2018. In the first round then she lost to Makarova (5-7, 0-6).
Zhang is the 31th racket of the world. It’s worth highlighting that she had a terrific start to the season. In the very first tournament, which was held in Brisbane, she was able to reach the finals, but there she was unexpectedly defeated by Elena Rybakina in two sets in tiebreaks. Then she went to Melbourne (Australian Open), where she reached the 1/16 finals, but lost to Sofia Kenin in a bitter struggle, which ultimately became a triumph.
Carla Suarez Navarro
The experienced Spanish tennis player Carla Suarez Navarro has only two career titles. One of them was won at a tournament in Doha in 2016. Last season, Carla had an exit in the second round.
A week earlier in Dubai, Navarro was unable to overcome the qualifications in Dubai and didn’t defend rating points for last year’s quarterfinal. In the event of another failure, the tennis player risks losing many positions in the WTA ranking.
She played pretty well for the Federation Cup qualifications, but there she didn’t have any worthy opponents. At the Australian Open, Carla was not able to go beyond the second round, having suffered an unexpected defeat from the Polish in two sets.

Zhang vs Navarro Predictions
The current tournaments in Dubai and Doha are too important for Suarez Navarro. Last week, a little wasn’t enough to overcome the qualifications in Dubai. Now in Doha, Carla is a convenient rival, who she won three times in her career.
This season, the Chinese lady shows results much more stable than her rival. In addition, Suarez-Navarro is going to end his career, so you should not expect a good game from her. The Spaniard is not in the most optimal form of play, as evidenced by her extreme matches. Several tournaments in a row Carla can’t go beyond the second round, even in Doha she got into a lucky-loser, losing in the final qualification.
In this match, we advise you to bet on the won of the Chinese athlete.
- Our prediction: Shuai Zhang Will Win.
