It has been a fair while since Britain’s Johanna Konta has been in action, but she makes her return in Canada this week.

She makes her return as the favourite in the match outright against Shuai Zhang.

Konta dominates the head to head against the Chinese player, can Konta make a winning return?

Shuai Zhang Preview – Can Zhang defy the odds?

One advantage that China’s Shuai Zhang has in this match is match sharpness.

She was in action last week at San Jose when she got past the first couple of rounds.

That leaves Zhang with a W5 L2 record in her last seven matches.

In the match outright for tennis betting in this match, Zhang is the 13/10 underdog* (odds taken 20:28 GMT on August 8th 2021 at 888sport).

Zhang is now on a 10/14 win/loss record for the season on the WTA.

She is currently ranked 51st in the world, ten places lower than Konta.

It is the hard court form that really is worth investing ahead of tennis betting for this one.

Zhang has lost all but two of her last ten matches on the hard court surface.

Our betting prediction:

So that’s where the question marks come in for Zhang’s chances on Tuesday.

The wins last week in San Jose came against Britain’s Emma Raducanu and then Madison Keys.

So that was a little upswing in form from her.

But the head to head needs to be focused on as well because Zhang is trailing Konta badly.

The Chinsese player has a W1 L6 record against Konta.


Johanna Konta Preview – Can Konta make a winning return?

This has been a season of disruptions for Johnna Konta because of injury.

Konta has not played since lifting the title at Nottingham in June, so that’s a long break.

The British star was set to play in the Olympics but she was forced to withdraw before the start of the tournament.

Konta is a quote of 8/13 in the match outright to pick up the win in this match* (odds taken 20:28 GMT on August 8th 2021 at 888sport).

Because of this absence from the game, that makes it hard to read Konta’s form.

On the WTA this year, Konta is on an 8/7 win/loss record because of having such a truncated year.

But she’s favourite for this match and the head to head leans towards that.

The most recent between these two players happened in Nottingham.

Johanna Konta lifted the Nottingham title in June with a comfortable win over Zhang in the final.

It is a five-match winning streak that Konta has over Zhang.

The Konta 2-0 set betting option has to come into play in this one at 11/10* (odds taken 20:28 GMT on August 8th 2021 at 888sport).
