Kristina Mladenovic vs. Sohyun Park Head to Head
This will be their first meeting on the WTA Tour.
Mladenovic, struggling with form
29-year-old Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic has been out of form for most of this season.
His singles total is 11-22 with a world No. 122 ranking. On the doubles side, she is out of the top 20.
Mladenovic has competed in WTA, ITF and Challenger events but hasn’t had much success. The exception to this is ITF Caserta in June where they won the title. She has since lost mostly in the early stages.
Her last WTA event was the US Open where she was stunned by Sara Bejlek in the first qualifying round in three sets. Kristina then played in an ITF event in France where she fell to Mona Barthel in the second round.
But there was a reprieve for her on the doubles circuit; she won the French Open, the Women’s Lausanne Open and the Paris Challenger.

Park, eager to impress
Considering Mladenovic’s recent fights, Sohyun Park will imagine his chances of having a good run at his home tournament in Seoul. She is expected to make her WTA Tour debut this week.
The 20-year-old is the current world number 488 and in her career so far has seven finals under her belt (three titles, four runners-up).
Like his experienced French counterpart, Park has also had a disappointing few months on the tour lately. More recently, Sohyun spent his time in France in a few ITF events, but lost in the early stages to Magali Kempen and Daria Snigur.
There are some exceptions to this, of course. Park was a semi-finalist for ITF Tbilisi 2 and 3 and ITF Glasgow.
Mladenovic v Park Prediction and Tip
Normally, Mladenovic would be the favourite, but given his recent form problems, Park will believe his chances of upsetting. In fact, bettors might want to back Park for a potential big win and big comebacks (11/4). On the safer side, this can see a good number of games.
Korea Open 2022 will be played from September 19-25. You can get all the tennis betting news with our tennis betting blog here. Also get the rest of the tennis match previews here.
