Wu has had a sensational year after deciding to come back to tennis. He first went on the futures circuit, winning in his second tournament and then reaching a challenger quarter final in Zagreb the month after. He then went to the US, where he dominated the US Challenger circuit. He won in Orlando, then won in Rome (beating Shelton in the final in straight sets, he didn’t lose a single set that week), and then winning Indianapolis the week after.
Now he does have history at the US Open, where he become the first Chinese player to win the US Open Boys title in 2017. There’s no doubt he’s going to reach the top 100 very soon, and will be very confident in reaching the US Open main draw this week.
Berankis has had an average year so far, clay has been a myth for him but he has reached the final of an indoor Challenger in France earlier this year and also reached the Quarter Finals of Dubai where he lost to Shapovalov. He hasn’t looked great this month on the hard courts, losing to Halys in three sets and then losing to Rinderknech in the Quarter Finals of the Vancouver Challenger – granted he was a small underdog in both matches.
The pair have never faced each other.
Yibing Wu’s level is just so much higher in comparison to Berankis. He’s been in excellent form, while Berankis has struggled the past few weeks. More than happy to take Wu’s odds.
