Shuai Zhang is 8-13 to lift the Guangzhou International Open title with a final victory over Aleksandra Krunic on Saturday morning, but the Serb is playing so well that she could give the home player a tough clash.

Second seed Zhang was a 9-1 chance before the tournament started, but with her top-seeded compatriot Shuai Peng exiting the tournament early, she soon became market leader.

Zhang, 28, played some blinding tennis when reaching the quarter-finals of the Australian Open early last year, but 6-4 chance Krunic has looked a title winner in waiting in recent weeks so match-winner punters should tread carefully.

There is also live coverage of the semi-finals in the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo from 4am on BT Sport 1 and the Korean Open in Seoul from 6am on BT Sport 3.

In the Laver Cup, Team Europe were 1-10 from 2-7 last night after taking an early 2-0 lead in Prague, where there were victories for Marin Cilic and Dominic Thiem. Team World had drifted to 7-1 from 7-2.
