Jeffrey John Wolf vs Zhizhen Zhang: US Open 2023 Preview


Jeffrey John Wolf quickly regained his winning touch upon the return of the tour to North America, a region where he had previously competed and achieved considerable success earlier in the year. He notably secured quarterfinal appearances or better in consecutive weeks, shining in Atlanta and Washington. However, his performance took a notable dip leading up to the US Open. In fact, he faced a significant setback by enduring back-to-back bagel sets against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina at the Toronto Masters and Alex de Minaur at the Cincinnati Masters. The 24-year-old has frequently delivered impressive showings in various United States tournaments, including prestigious events like the Indian Wells Masters, Miami Masters, and the US Open. In the context of New York, he has entered the main draw twice in his career, advancing to the third round on both occasions.

After a heartbreaking five-set defeat in the first round of the 2022 US Open as a qualifier, Zhizhen Zhang has demonstrated unwavering commitment on both the Challenger circuit and the main tour. His perseverance has earned him a direct entry into the current tournament’s main draw. In the previous year, he showcased strong performance in qualifiers, seemingly destined for a smooth opening-round victory. However, his momentum shifted dramatically, missed opportunities piled up, and he eventually lost a five-set battle to Tim Van Rijthoven. The 2023 Madrid Masters quarterfinalist found himself leading in all three of his Grand Slam losses this year. Notably, he faced five-set defeats against Ben Shelton and Botic Van De Zandschulp in the first rounds of the Australian Open and Wimbledon, respectively. He also held a set advantage against Casper Ruud in the French Open’s third round before ultimately losing the match.
